Kathy Bernard, CEO of CapableCandidates.com, was named one of the winners of the July 2019 Washington University St. Louis Skandalaris Center ideaBounce® contest for her Capable Candidates concept.
Her concept involves contracting with companies facing severe talent shortages to arrange for paid, targeted training of non-traditional candidates to fix their specific weaknesses and prepare them for jobs at the paying companies so that these applicants can be more easily hired.
The Skandalaris Center for Interdisciplinary Innovation & Entrepreneurship at Washington University of St. Louis fosters creativity, innovation and entrepreneurism. It services all Washington University students, faculty, staff, and alumni, as well as the Greater St. Louis community.
The ideaBoune® pitch contest and award ceremony was conducted on July 30, 2019 at the Better Family Life Cultural, Educational and Business Center. The event was an opportunity for members of the St. Louis entrepreneurship community to pitch their ideas and network with other community members and business owners.
