As the digital transformation of the talent marketplace continues, there is a need for a scalable and trusted way to validate skills with employers. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation has launched JobSIDE (Jobs Skills for In-Demand Employment), a new initiative that will generate openly available, employer-validated skills for the most in-demand jobs. JobSIDE’s tools and applications will support employer validation of skills, skills-based hiring, and the mapping of skills to curriculum, credentials, assessments, and records. 

JobSIDE will be piloted with select partners in 2023 and fully deployed in 2024.
