The unemployment rate continues to improve, but there are still millions out of work, and there are over 3 million open jobs where employers are searching for workers with the right skills to fill them.   Bridging this gap will require better attention to the “skills match”, increasing credentialing and certifications for adult learners, and giving K-12 students the tools needed to develop life-long learning habits and career knowledge.  Lee Ramsayer is an Executive Vice President with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and a champion of work readiness and skills development.  Join Ron Painter and Mr. Ramsayer on Wednesday, May 14 at 1:00 PM EDT for a lively conversation on new technologies, where Workforce Investment Boards (WIBs) should focus their credentialing efforts, and how to take work readiness to the next level.
