The Shifting Post Secondary Job Ecosystem with Paul Fain

Paul Fain is a Freelance Journalist and Analyst who serves as the Editor of The Job Newsletter from Open Campus. Each week he provides a veteran journalist’s take on what to watch as postsecondary education and job training systems work to better serve lower-income learners and workers.

Paul joins host Mike Palmer in a discussion about recent trends he’s been tracking through The Job and Work Shift, a related newsletter that tracks related topics through the reporting of local journalists. We explore emerging models that provide new pathways to traditionally underserved students using Riipen and Forage as examples. Then we dive into the work that Amazon has been doing in this area with its AWS Academy and other ventures outlined in a recent edition of The Job.

It’s a far-reaching and informative conversation about a critical and underreported space that you won’t want to miss.
