When hiring entry-level roles, focusing on experience and education often isn’t productive.
If candidates are young, they may not yet have spent much time in the workforce, so their resumes will be light. And, depending on the type of work you’re offering, their educational background might not span far beyond high school, and might not even be relevant.
So, if you’re building an apprenticeship program, you’re going to need an alternative to these traditional hiring methods.
Andy Seth, founder of Flow, and a new apprenticeship platform called Apprentix, understands this and has successfully transitioned his recruitment process to be centered around skills.
Using Vervoe, he’s getting apprenticeship candidates to complete skills assessments that test their ability to perform relevant job-related tasks, ranking their results against other candidates, and making it easy for companies to create and manage apprenticeships.
In fact, he’s found this skills-based hiring approach so successfully, that he recently hired a COO using the same method.
In this webinar, Andy joins Vervoe’s Dom Hennequin to unpack the power of skills-based hiring, how he’s scaled the practice using Vervoe, and how the approach is versatile enough to suit any role, from the workbench to the boardroom.
Andy Seth is a serial entrepreneur, #1 Best-Selling Author, Founder of Apprentix, Founder of Ravience, Founder of Flow Marketing, and Co-Founder of LotusGroup Advisors. Andy’s also helped thousands of individuals break the cycle of poverty, and raised millions through his charitable endeavors.
Andy has been featured by media outlets including CNBC, CBS, The Huffington Post, Wall Street & Technology, and Comcast Newsmakers. He has also won numerous awards including “Forty Under 40” and “Top 25 Most Influential in Colorado”.
But things weren’t always so cush. Until the age of 14, Andy lived in a Los Angeles motel with his sister and parents. He was an entrepreneur from the jump, launching his first business at the age of thirteen while earning full-ride scholarships to Culver Military Academy and Boston College.
He’s a husband and father and on any given day you’ll find him meditating, volunteering, and running the top 10% of all B Corps worldwide, Flow & Ravience.
