SkillLab is a personal career assistant that supports job seekers and career counseling services to uncover professional career pathways into jobs, education, and volunteering.
With SkillLab’s assessment tools, job seekers can identify and document their professional skills fast and in their native languages and explore professional career pathways they could pursue in a given labour market. The technology links those skills to job opportunities and identifies skills that would increase employability. Job seekers, case managers, and career coaches use the resulting Skill Profiles to improve career planning, job search, and vocational training.
The tool is designed to be embedded in existing career service processes and can easily be scaled.

What's Innovative About Their Solution?

Almost all applications in HR-tech are focusing on satisfying companies and HR departments. SkillLab focuses on job seekers. Their award-winning AI-technology captures the skills of job seekers within a large dataset while being extremely scalable and always providing a very personalized experience. 
Additionally, SkillLab operates with a mobile-first design approach, as their target audience increasingly relies on mobile phones instead of computers, and is available in up to 27 languages.
