Job seekers who are interested in expanding their skills while searching for their next position can now do both on iHire. By incorporating MOOCtracks into the user experience, iHire has created a seamless tool for investigating employment and educational opportunities in the same place.
MOOCs (massively open online courses) are closing skills gaps and challenging the landscape of education by offering an alternative to traditional degree programs and brick and mortar universities. To make it easier for their members to take advantage of these free and low-cost instructional opportunities, iHire has added the ability to search for MOOCs without leaving the iHire site. By integrating MOOCtracks into their existing design, iHire has developed a simple way for job seekers to determine which available courses may help them learn the skills they need to get ahead in their careers.
“The beauty of MOOCtracks is that it’s meant for any student to find classes that interest them,” said iHire CEO, David MacFadyen. “Adding this resource to our users’ experience was a logical step, and they can now quickly switch between searching for employment opportunities and perusing available courses that will make them more attractive candidates.”
In addition to lifelong students and job seekers interested in increasing their marketability, MOOCtracks is equally useful for HR representatives and corporate trainers tasked with finding targeted courses and development programs for their teams.
