Helping Employers Find Talent
We have people without jobs, and jobs without people. Today, 50% of open, available positions in this country go unfilled, because the candidates aren’t available.

Traditional education and career pathways weren't designed to develop skills for a fast-changing market or to match the speed of changing industry requirements. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Talent Pipeline ManagementTM (TPM) initiative is a workforce strategy for our time that can meet the needs of today’s changing business environment.
The demands of today’s economy require a strategic alignment between classroom and career that better supports students in their transition to the workforce. More than 1,000 employers across the country are finding that alignment and seeing results by making Talent Pipeline Management
