Nadia commented on The UpSkillery - develop practical, employable skills

I think this is a great idea! I would add digital skills to those available. I think this would be a good way to even supplement education; for instance, someone who either doesn't have the opportunity to learn about marketing in college or is too hesitant to try it could use "The Upskillery" to test the waters and develop hard skills in their industry or industries of choice.

I like the idea of using small data to create a personal brand, but how do you make this "youth specific," as opposed to a more general solution? Also, how do you find development opportunities for young employment seekers in order to enable them to develop their brand? I think there needs to be an additional step that helps young professionals seeking to use small data to develop a personal brand learn the skills / develop their interests to create a personal brand for themselves. All in all, a cool idea!
