Editorial Note: TTL NEXT West will be inside the ASU GSV Summit in San Diego, April 8 – 10. Do you have your spot reserved? Here at Talent Tech Labs, we know NEXT West is going to be unlike any other event in 2019, but don’t take our word for it. Read what Will Rosen has to say about the premiere event for Talent Acquisition Leaders.

The Problem with the Education-Employment Formula

It used to be simple: Do well in school, get a solid job, and you’d paved the way for a financially stable life. More and more, the education-employment formula isn’t adding up, and it’s rapidly growing more complicated. Today, two-thirds of careers require some measure of higher education, which can be both expensive and competitive. On top of that, chances are you will have to retrain consistently to be current with new technology, if not get additional degrees or certifications to advance your career. And as tuition continues to increase, higher education is becoming unattainable for many.

The United States education system was not intended for this new world of work, and the current trends are going to continue. As the education-to-employment gap has grown, the thought leaders in this space are realizing that the future of work must be addressed. To help bridge the gap between education and talent acquisition, Talent Tech Labs is hosting their most recent NEXT Event inside of ASU GSV.

What is the ASU GSV Summit?

For ten years, the ASU GSV Summit has convened the most important leaders across the global “Pre K to Gray” education and workforce innovation sector, including investors, educators, policymakers, entrepreneurs and business leaders, to accelerate innovation that gives ALL people equal access to the future. This year’s summit is scheduled for April 8-10 in sunny San Diego, California.

Over 4,500 leaders are expected to attend, including CEOs, investors, TA executives, schools and university leaders, enterprise learning leaders, politicians, foundation leaders, and policymakers. Past speakers have included Barack Obama, George Bush, Bill Gates, Magic Johnson and many more influential and transformative leaders.

The TTL and ASU GSV Partnership

A mutual desire to bring clarity and innovation to the Talent Acquisition Technology space lead to TTL NEXT West being hosted by ASU GSV. This summit will bring together the top leaders in the Talent Acquisition space who want to drive the dialogue surrounding education, technology and the future of work.

NEXTmessage is a startup funding and engagement app. Attendees can use this unique app to spend their $100,000 in NEXTbucks – a “cryptocurrency” that is used to fund the participating companies in a friendly competition. Participants are encouraged to play the role of investor and “fund” the specific companies they would want to include in their own Talent Acquisition strategy. In the end, we achieve high levels of engagement, real knowledge sharing and great feedback for innovators to tune their solutions to real business challenges.
