New Partnership in Dallas Helps More Find IT Careers: Monthly Impact Report - Dec. 2016

Per Scholas Dallas announced a new partnership with mroads, a Dallas-based company that helps businesses and hiring managers across the globe find the right talent using the first of its kind technology.

Mroads is equipping Per Scholas with its newest hiring platform, Paññã, to help prepare candidates for job interviews, as well as accelerate the job hiring process by tracking the progress of each interview. Paññã is a data-driven platform that seamlessly evaluates candidate’s skillsets using pre-evaluation, facial recognition and market median comparison to efficiently identify talent in the shortest time. Throughout the partnership, all Per Scholas students in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex will have access to the platform and can use it for interview practice, preparation and to track progress throughout the training program.

Billy Lane, Per Scholas Dallas Managing Director said, “Here in Dallas, Per Scholas will use mroads’ signature service to help better prepare our diverse group of training participants for the intense level of vetting done by HR professionals through artificially intelligent hiring. Our hope is that this tool will lead to an increase in the placement and retention of our training graduates, most of whom – as a demographic – are underrepresented in the tech sector today.”

Jason Sheppard, vice president at mroads, added, “We are honored to support an organization like Per Scholas that is not only located in our backyard, but one that values our services to enhance the quality of lives here in the Metroplex.”
