Free Webinar: The Truth About the Skills Gap

Over the month of March we’ve been talking a lot about the continued growth of the skills gap in the U.S. Many hiring managers and recruiters confront the reality of the skills gap on a daily basis. In fact, more than half of employers nationwide have an open job for which they cannot find qualified candidates, and 80 percent have difficulty filling positions altogether.
