The advancements of technology have had a huge impact on the today’s workforce. However, these advancements have left many workers behind because of a lack of training in the new skills needed to remain competitive. The Markel Foundation launched Skillful as a means to provide these workers with the training and additional resources in partnership with Microsoft, LinkedIn, and local governments. Influence worked with Skillful to create a web portal to connect job seekers, employers and counselors. My role included the design and front-end development as well as motion graphics and video production.
As a part of the Skillful web portal, I created a series of explainer videos to help job seekers learn to use tools such as LinkedIn to promote themselves and build their resumes as a means to find new employment and connect with employers.
