Skillful tools, expertise and resources are shared through the Rework America Alliance which is working to help millions of unemployed and workers from low-wage roles to move into good jobs.

"There are 7.3 million fewer jobs in the United States today for people with a high school degree or less than there were in 1989. At the same time, 6 million jobs in our country go unfilled due in large part to a shortage of skilled workers. This mismatch is leaving workers on the sidelines and employers without the talent they need to run their operations," said Brad Smith, president of Microsoft. "Skillful is building an entire ecosystem to close this gap, helping Americans find and train for better-paying jobs, while connecting employers with the talent they need to thrive in the digital economy."
