Knack for business

Knack helps businesses all over the world solve their most critical challenge—attracting, hiring, developing and empowering top talent. Tapping into the appeal of mobile games, insight of behavioral neuroscience, and power of big data, Knack enables you to identify the right people—quickly, consistently and repeatedly—at web scale.

Whether you’re a global enterprise or a small business, using the Knack Business App is straightforward: as people play, our algorithms predict potential in real time so you can make the right decisions and hire the right talent. Powerful, yet simple.

 

Knack for education

 

“As data analytics become increasingly important in the talent acquisition process, I want our students to have every resource available to differentiate themselves when it comes to job opportunities. Knack is Uberizing the way employers and job seekers connect. Based on opinions of other experts I hold in high regard and anticipating the future mobile usage in the labor market, Knack cannot be ignored as a player in this space now and in the future.”

~Stuart Mease, Executive Director, Student Advancement and Career Services, Virginia Tech

We built Knack to help people find the right jobs. Students, learners, and trainees in high schools, colleges, universities, and workforce training programs are matched to opportunities—including some they may not have even considered—based on their potential rather than their credentials.

Leading employers are using Knack in their campus, online, and social recruiting to find talent, with more companies getting on board every day.

Schools are making Knack available to their students and alumni to help them discover their strengths, develop self awareness, map their options, and jump-start their careers by getting hired into the jobs best suited to their talents.

And, as part of our company’s global social mission, Knack is free to all schools and students.

 

Knack for social impact

 

Knack uses its breakthrough, scalable technology to provide disadvantaged and marginalized people around the world with an empowering gateway to social and economic mobility. Helping people tap into their true potential will increase their well-being, break persistent cycles of poverty, and make them hopeful about the future.

Hope is one of our most powerful resources. Technology, connectivity, and mobility can, and, we believe, should play a key role in producing hope at global scale. Knack aims to unlock the talents of the next Billion Minds, replace cycles of poverty with cycles of hope, and fundamentally alter life trajectories and socio-economic outcomes for all.

Two recent projects produced unprecedented data and insight about the talent hidden in disadvantaged populations—Project Hope working with students in the Philippines, and the Impact Hiring project, whose paper and data will be released this month, focusing on unemployed youth in the U.S.

TechHire is a bold public-private initiative to empower Americans with the skills they need for the half-million well-paying jobs available in fields like software development, network administration, and cybersecurity.

Using universities and community colleges as well as coding “boot camps” and online courses, TechHire partners will train workers to fill the critical need for employees with these skills.

Upskill America is an employer-led movement to expand economic opportunity for America’s workers.

As employers are struggling to find skilled workers, tens of millions of people in low-wage jobs could be trained to fill more challenging roles but lack a clear career path and have little access to career-relevant training.

The Billion Minds Initiative is our audacious plan to unlock the potential of the world’s underserved, and give them the chance to choose their own future.

We believe technology should make everyone’s life better, and people from disadvantaged areas have skills that can be unlocked to the benefit of entire communities, filling the critical talent gap—crucial for business growth and mitigating the impacts of poverty.
