Nate commented on Immigrants Skills Repository

Hi Shemeon,
I love your idea to help immigrants find paid (ideally fulfilling) work in their new communities by identifying the skills they already possess and/or facilitating training for in-demand skills. It's interesting to think of your proposed organization, ISR, as something like a specialized recruiting/staffing firm. In addition to matchmaking between organizations and migrants, ISR could have the work authorization process down pat so that it's easy for hiring organizations to bring employees/contractors aboard.
