If you are looking for local talent (and who isn’t?), don’t forget our Cartersville City and Bartow County high schools where many students are taking a state-funded interest and aptitude assessment known as YouScience.
YouScience uses performance measures of aptitudes and industry-recognized certifications to validate an individual’s knowledge and skills.
Now, for the very first time, companies are being permitted to create profiles on the online platform, making your company more visible to local students. This is why the Cartersville-Bartow Chamber is partnering with YouScience to support the launch of YouScience Employer Connections (formerly known as YouScience Talent Marketplace)- to help local talent become more aware of career opportunities in their very own community.
What Exactly is YouScience?
YouScience was created to help answer some of life’s biggest questions for young adults such as “Why am I learning this?” and “What do I want to be when I grow up?”
By using a series of psychometrically valid “brain games”, YouScience determines students’ unique set of natural abilities. When combined with interests, the results yield career recommendations that enable students to be matched to careers and receive personalized feedback on how their abilities can be utilized in school, work, or their daily lives.
YouScience looks closely at students’ basic abilities and, based on data gathered so far, those abilities are similar across racial, ethnic, and gender differences helping young people to see and consider careers they never would have thought of before because they may not have role models to tell them about those careers.
This self-discovery will help change lives.
YouScience Discovery brain games match what a person is good at (aptitudes) and what he or she likes to do (interests) with in-demand careers for which they’ll have a competitive advantage.
How does it work?
Local employers can create their profiles by entering their company information and indicating the skills desired from potential employees. Using a proprietary algorithm that matches individuals’ talents and skills, YouScience identifies individuals that are well-suited to meet employers’ human resource needs.
Qualified candidates are aligned to suitable employment opportunities through YouScience Employer Connections. This allows your company to get in front of talent earlier and opens the door for future internships, work-based learning opportunities, or even full-time work.
