Kedar Iyer

The gap between the skills acquired with a university education and the skills needed at the work place is growing.

    I think this is great concept that can create amazing results with the right stakeholders involved. The idea and organization need to build credibility among the work sector professionals so that recognition translates into actual employment being obtained. It would be great for a student's aptitude, measured from the site, to be included in transcripts and LinkedIn to augment recognition. Keep up the good work, and good luck!
