The hiring pathway hasn’t evolved as much as one might think. That's why Google’s announcement of a $100 million training fund to help 20,000 workers is so significant.
Not only is the company betting big on a new kind of training—its own Career Certificates program—but the initiative also involves two partners, Merit America and Year Up, who are among an emerging cadre of nonprofits rethinking how the country recruits and trains workers for the new tech economy.
