interviewIA Partners with Spark Mindset to Build a More Diverse Cybersecurity Talent Pool
Denver, Colorado - June 2, 2022 interviewIA — the interview platform that empowers hiring companies to make it possible for their recruiters, hiring managers, and interviewers to conduct equitable and data-driven interviews — has partnered with Spark Mindset – who provides world-class cybersecurity courses at low or no cost so that more people from historically disadvantaged backgrounds can enter into this high paying career field.
According to CyberSeek, a portal powered by Emsi Burning Glass data, only 68 qualified workers are available for every 100 cybersecurity jobs, and over 600,000 jobs open up for cybersecurity workers every year in the US.
Clearly there is a need for more talent in this specific area, and apprenticeships are a great way for hiring companies to find, and develop, talent who have the baseline skills and, more importantly, the transferable skills to bring to the role.
“When you can't find the talent you're looking for, you essentially have to develop that talent,“ says Ubaldo Ciminieri, CMO & Head of Strategic Partnerships at interviewIA. “Partnering with Spark Mindset, who is developing new cybersecurity talent, to support their efforts, and do so in a structured and repeatable way, is on mission for us. Now more than ever hiring companies have to adapt to a new future of work that isn't just about years of experience or where someone went to school. How Spark Mindset has integrated interviewIA into their Industry Partner Process really speaks to the power of connecting all the hiring dots for companies to empower them to hire the right people in hard-to-fill roles.”
Recently, Ubaldo and Spark Mindset Founder, Lawrence Wagner, sat down to discuss the partnership. Have a listen:
