Workforce Skills Gap Forum

August 1 at 6 PM

Every year, colleges and universities graduate thousands students looking to join the workforce.  But are they prepared?  With such an apparent abundance of available talent, why do many employers continue to complain about a "skills gap" and a lack of qualified candidates to fill positions?

Is the mission of higher education to prepare graduates with the skills they need (and that employers want) for the 21st century?  Is there a disconnect between academia and the working world?  Should our colleges adapt to train more work-ready graduates?

On August 1st, Mountain Lake PBS will bring together a panel of representatives from area colleges and businesses to tackle the question, "What do employers want?"

ATTEND: August 1 at 6 PM, Mountain Lake PBS, 1 Sesame St, Plattsburgh

WATCH: Friday, Aug 5 at 8 PM on-air and online
