Skill Finder, the free digital micro-skills marketplace developed by the Australian technology industry, today launched 20 new dedicated ‘Career Pathways’ to help meet the growing demand for skilled workers in high-demand jobs such as data analytics, digital marketing and UX design.
Skill Finder, led by Adobe, was launched in October 2020 to help support Australia’s economic recovery through and post–pandemic. The Career Pathways are designed to help job seekers learn about the different career paths and upskilling options available for high-demand industries, enabling a better understanding of the skills and qualifications required.
The 20 career specialisations align to current employment opportunities in growing occupations including data analysts, digital marketing specialists, digital support and customer service professionals, and UX designers. The new functionality and integrations also connect people who are upskilling with relevant job boards, such as LinkedIn, to help them explore different digital career options, while in turn helping companies attract newly skilled digital talent.
Since launch, Skill Finder has expanded to offer more than 2,000 online micro-skills and courses from over 25 providers, including the world’s leading technology companies. To date, more than 200,000 unique visitors have enrolled in more than 35,000 courses, to upskill in areas such as graphic design, coding, cloud computing and data analysis and management.
