Online Talent Platforms - Enabling The SIM Model
In many ways, this affirms my thinking about the Skills-Information-Mobility model (See SIM Model of Employability). The broad definition of the Online Talent Platforms was indeed warranted, because it would be more than just connecting people with jobs. As is happening with Linkedin, one would perhaps see a convergence between Information and Skills aspect of the equation, and it would surely be an attractive model for the Online colleges to look at. The educational institutions have always found it difficult to combine the educational and recruitment activities together, but with the transformation of work (not just Gig Economy, but other enablers such as Workflow solutions), it may have become much easier to combine the two together.
