The growing cloud skills gap presents a challenge and an opportunity, as does reskilling the 200,000 military veterans who reenter civilian life in the United States each year. SkillStorm, a digital training and workplace transformation firm, addresses both these challenges by hiring, training, and deploying diverse tech talent to its Fortune 500 clients.
One of SkillStorm’s graduates is Tobius Nelson. Upon leaving the US Navy as an aviation machinist, Nelson did a variety of physically demanding civilian jobs. “When you get home, you realize that certain salaries make it difficult to provide for yourself and your family,” Nelson says. When workplaces shut down during the COVID-19 pandemic, he imagined a different future. “I wanted to have the skills to thrive in the knowledge economy and a job that would provide better career prospects in the long run,” he says.
