“Our methodology looks at the skills a student should acquire from a role-based perspective,” Beyondskills founder Davide Carmeci says. “We analyze the job description for each role and define the standard requirements that hiring managers expect to find in their job candidates. Our instructors then build their syllabi with those requirements in mind, developing courses that will prepare students to be effective workers from day one.”
A shortage of talent in the blockchain market
In this era of technological development, more employers are looking for employees with blockchain skills. While more organizations commit to blockchain technology, there is a shortage of talent in the market. Beyondskills aims to address this problem by offering training for people interested in pursuing careers in blockchain at all levels.
When the blockchain community started growing, Davide foresaw this shortage of talent. “Before I launched Beyondskills, I had a chance to contribute to the growth and sales of an e-learning IT security company,” says Davide. “This experience helped me see the incredible impact the ed-tech industry can have in changing people’s lives.” Davide’s previous stint in the ed-tech industry also helped him understand how technology evolves. “When emerging technologies develop from the initial hype to a more mature stage, there is usually a mismatch between the job market that requires professionals proficient in the new technology vs. the education system’s ability to produce graduates with those skills.”
When Davide became passionate about the blockchain industry a few years ago, he realized the technology would inevitably suffer from a shortage of trained graduates. Last year, when he left his previous company, it dawned on him that it was the perfect time to support the blockchain community by offering an effective and accessible training solution. “I shared this idea with the former CEO and founder of my previous company, Armando Romeo,” Davide says. “Armando decided to invest in it, and Beyondskills was born.”
