What does this mean for PowerToFly?

Not much should change on the logistical end for PowerToFly community members. But we will be offering even more opportunities to upskill and reskill for career success.

Apart from our networking events, career highlights, and virtual job fairs, you’ll get access to technical and non-technical upskilling opportunities so you can get a new job, grow as a leader, and earn more money.

Let’s hear what our CEO, Milena Berry, has to say about it!

“Training diverse professionals for the jobs of the future is a frequent conversation we have with our job seekers. With Skillcrush, we’re making accessible, inclusive technical training a reality for millions who now have a direct path to hiring managers on PowerToFly once they complete their training.”
