On Friday, July 8th, through a special edition of MAX Minutes with Accenture, Thomas Flake, Accenture’s U.S. Program Manager for the Skills to Succeed Academy, joined MAX to review how free employability training through Accenture can help your learners plan their careers, get a job, and succeed in work in a gamified learn-by-doing simulation platform. Through Accenture’s partnerships with non-profits, high schools, colleges, and government agencies, they have impacted the lives of over 100,000 learners in the US.
Joining Flake was Jacque Joyce, Director of Industry Partnerships with CareerRise, who shared how the Skills to Succeed Academy has helped CareerRise create the Career Compass Academy and deliver this training to over 2,000 students.
