Help Simcoach Games grow and give back to the community by voting online before June 19, 2015!

Simcoach Games is excited to announce its application to the Mission Main Street Grants competition by Chase. Clients, fans and community members can show their support by voting online at www.missionmainstreetgrants.com/b/29433 using Facebook Connect.

This grant will accelerate our existing development plans for the Simcoach Skill Arcade, a mobile app that will empower underemployed and unemployed applicants to learn, practice and showcase the skills employers demand. From the business side, companies and organizations will be able to view applicants’ profiles and achievements, giving them direct access to a pipeline of pre-trained, pre-qualified applicants.

“Over the past ten years we have seen the same problems over and over again at companies in all industries,” says CEO and Founder Jessica Trybus. “Employers need applicants with a basic understanding of the job requirements and the soft skills to help them succeed. Applicants need a way to show they are ready to work that goes beyond the traditional resume or job application form.

Trybus explains, “The Simcoach Skill Arcade bridges the gap between employers and applicants and is a scalable, mobile application that can be used by anyone, anywhere. It will empower and encourage applicants as they move through the hiring cycle and provide employers with the necessary tools to train, engage and retain their workforce.”

The voting deadline is June 19, 2015 and grant recipients will be selected by expert panelists. Simcoach Games needs your help to earn the 250 votes that will ensure our application makes it to the panel.
