An international competition to complete online employment skills certifications has revealed astonishing breadth and diversity in the world"s workforce.
The contest currently underway until April 4th, was developed and conducted by Brainbench, the global leader in online skills and employment assessments, to assess job skills and knowledge on a global scale.
They have also shown some surprising results that challenge commonly-held views about concentrations of the world"s technical talent pools:
• Eastern European nations such as Romania, Latvia, Bulgaria, and Belarus lead Western countries such as the U.K., Australia, Germany, and France in total certifications.
• As a percentage of total population, Latvia, Estonia, and Bulgaria lead the world (along with some extremely small nations such as San Marino and American Samoa.) Traditionally tech-savvy nations such as Singapore, Israel, and Sweden score farther down the list.
• As in 2003 and 2004, the United States, India, and the Russian Federation still lead the list in total certifications, and Romania is the next.
During the contest period, the tests are available free of charge to anyone registering with Brainbench, including their 6 million existing users.
Approximately 100,000 tests have been completed in the first week.
Daily Leader Board results are posted on the Brainbench website ( www.brainbench.com ) showing overall country stats, percentage of population comparisons and soon the individual leaders.
