We continue to hear policy makers discuss the mismatch between employer skill needs and the existing skills of the workforce. Career-focused schools actually see this disconnect every day. Employers in a region may have multiple job openings for skilled workers in a particular field. Yet, few students at career schools enroll in those programs in sufficient quantities to meet employer demand. People often dont know what the high demand careers are or where they can go to get the right skills.
