Skills Gap: Despite high unemployment, many employers report having job openings that they cannot find workers with the necessary skills to fill those positions. This speech will discuss why there are so many open positions that cannot get filled, including issues such as the lack of interpersonal communication and leadership skills in the workforce, the lack of adaptability and flexibility needed to compete in today's job market, and technological advancements that are rendering skills obsolete within two years. It will also offer tips for education and training strategies to address this reality. The speech can be customized based upon audience interest, or to allow for audience discussion.
speaker: Victoria Berry
