ALBANY, NY - A pilot jobs program being offered for free through the Albany Public Library tests your skills through an online test to see if you are a good match and help you understand what you need to learn.
The program, called SkillUp Capital Region, uses a software program called Metrix Learning that was developed by a company called New York Wired for Education.
Led by CEO Brian Lee, New York Wired for Education is based at the SUNY Polytechnic Institute campus in Albany.
The company's software is used by workforce development boards and local governments to help tackle unemployment and job training needs. The company's web sites test people for specific jobs in their communities and lets them build up those skills they need to get those jobs.
