The skills gap is a global issue. By 2020, there is predicted to be 48 million new job seekers pa, and a shortage of 84 million mid-high level skills.
Mintor’s advanced skills matching and online task delivery platform helps address this problem by reducing businesses’ cost of access to technical skills across regions, improving the mechanisms for project delivery and connecting employers and students sooner in a low risk work environment.
By facilitating students and businesses’ collaboration on high impact projects, we aim to provide tertiary students with far more opportunities to build market relevant skills and credibility, and progressive businesses with a structure to cost-efficiently vet students as potential future hires while getting pending tasks done.
Students are an incredible pool of untapped millennial talent. They are digitally savvy, multi-taskers, social network experts, innovative, and strong on processing lots of information quickly. We believe that students have skills that could fuel business growth with new energy and the latest tech expertise.
We are passionate about the large scale socio-economic purpose of Mintor: helping students and businesses grow.
