As a result, there is a critical need to bridge the efforts of industry and education in preparing students for careers and building a skilled workforce. These podcasts provide a forum for communicating industry needs and understanding the educational process that can support workforce demands. With insightful commentary and discussion from educational professionals and industry leaders, this podcast helps uncover critical issues pertaining to employment needs and career-readiness. The primary goal of these discussions is to enhance the partnership between industry and education in promoting employment success among students, as well as economic growth in local and global communities.

Guiding Thoughts and Principles

The paradox of low unemployment and a war for talent will continue.

Are higher education institutions out of sync with employer needs?

Students do not believe that traditional education methods drive job skills.

While CTE education appears to be a good solution, it has low or lesser perceived value among students and parents.

Students have a weak understanding of the skills and degrees which will best help them find a job.

Bottom Line: Skills Matter, and it's Hard to Get Them
