“There are currently 16,258 education startups listed along with only 2,940 job openings on Angel.co. The education startup ecosystem is saturated with various startups, and many of these new companies are nearly identical, leaving it quite challenging to find a way for your startup to stand out. One of the problems most education companies face is they rarely hire or work with a teacher until they officially launched their product.
Some things startups should look for in hiring teachers:
“A new report created by The Economist Intelligence Unit assesses how well-prepared 25 countries are for the challenges and opportunities of intelligent automation. The report found that even the countries most ready for the future of work must rethink education and training with a focus on lifelong learning to prepare people for the jobs of tomorrow.
“Some top companies are broadening their hiring criteria by dropping degree requirements. At Penguin Random House U.S., it’s long been policy not to require degrees and consulting firm EY dropped the requirement for its U.K. hires in 2015. Concerns about not being able to find enough workers led IBM to look at new sources of talent–without bachelor’s degrees.
Companies need to do more than just complain about the labor shortage. Ultimately, they are going to need to try new things. Maintaining the status quo has hidden costs, including turnover, higher salaries for unnecessary credentials, and difficulty filling key roles.”
