There has been a lot in the news recently about the “Education to Employment Gap”:
  • “75 million young people are unemployed – yet only 43% of employers report there are enough qualified entry-level candidates.”– McKinsey & Company, 2012 Education to Employment Survey
  • “Organizations are struggling to find and secure the right talent for jobs as they become available–contributing to the largest talent gap in over 20 years.” – The Economist, November 2, 2015
  • “Employers across sectors and geographies have difficulty finding workers with relevant skills; aspiring workers lack insight into which skills are in demand and access to the resources to develop their talents fully.”  – Fortune Magazine, March 5, 2015
  • “The country is being forced to examine the ways in which it prepares its students for the working world. Graduating from a four-year college has long been viewed as the surest path to success. Yet many undergraduates are emerging with thousands of dollars of debt while still lacking a clear career path.” – Chicago Tribune, January 6, 2016
