“Today, nearly 11 million Americans are unemployed. Yet, at the same time, 4 million jobs sit unfilled. This is the ‘skills gap’ — the gulf between the skills job seekers currently have and the skills employers need to fill their open positions.”
-James Dimon, Chairman & CEO, JPMorgan Chase & Co., and Marlene Seltzer, President & CEO, Jobs for the Future

The U.S. economy continues to be fueled by rapid developments in technology. These advancements increase production efficiency and lead to innovative products and services. As a result, jobs across all industries are increasingly complex, and employers are demanding workers who possess greater levels of skill and competency. The knowledge economy continues to grow, today representing between 28 and 45 percent of the entire U.S. labor force. Eighty-five percent of new positions created since 2000 require specialized skill sets. The knowledge economy requires workers not only to have higher-level skills but also to update their skill sets continually. Today, the skills earned by four-year college graduates have a shelf life of approximately five years.
