NEW YORK - Sept. 11, 2018 - PRLog -- Mitchell Martin Inc., a leader in talent acquisition, has launched a new partnership with skills training pioneer General Assembly to facilitate the development and recruitment of employees equipped with today's most in-demand technical and digital skills. Under the partnership, General Assembly (GA) will provide access to GA alumni talent as well as provide training opportunities to Mitchell Martin employees. Eligible employees will be trained on skills including Python, Javascript, CyberSecurity, Data Science, and UX/UI Design.

The partnership addresses the tech talent shortage and lack of diversity in technology workforce.  The goal is to recruit and train non-stem individuals who want to enter the technology workforce with an emphasis on women, minorities, and veterans.

Additionally, Mitchell Martin will now be able to offer their consultants GA training in emerging technologies thus providing their clients new sources of candidates.  The partnership will also provide graduates of General Assembly with access to a broader range of employment opportunities through Mitchell Martin's client network.

"Innovation is at the core of what we do, and this partnership is a creative way for us to bring the candidates with the most sought-after technology skills to our clients" said Gene Holtzman, CEO of Mitchell Martin.

"Companies are finding it increasingly difficult to locate and develop talent in emerging fields, including IT. We are excited to take the lead with Mitchell Martin in helping candidates and employers thrive in a rapidly evolving economy, by increasing diversity and providing new avenues to employment while creating a fluid tech talent pipeline," said Catie Brand, Director of Talent Acquisition for General Assembly.
