Skillsbuild A Platform from IBM to Integrate AI in Recruitment

The program provides pieces of training, reskilling, and coachings in the communities to help them re-enter working spaces.
SkillsBuild: A Newer Approach
SkillsBuild also partners with local NGOs to help people. IBM stated that it is a new and sustainable hiring perspective; however, it is not being implemented in IBM hiring right now.
Using AI to Find Employees In Non-Traditional Ways
The IBM Skillsbuild platform intends to amalgamate artificial intelligence with the other tools to find skilled employees in unconventional ways. MyInnerGenuis is an AI integrated with the IBM Skillsbuild. MyInnerGenuis is currently being used to fill Mid and entry-level IT jobs in the US under IBMs Collar Programs. It is also being used in the Skillsbuild program in the Europe.
Filling Roles by People without Formal Degrees
Most of the roles being filled by the platforms are the ones that do not require a college degree. People without previous IT experience are filling these roles.
