Do Employers Have A Preparedness Gap Or A Communication Gap?
Employers sometimes talk about what they call a preparedness gap.
I recently saw a report from the Association of American Colleges and Universities showing a range of areas in which there’s a 10 percentage point or greater gap between the share of employers who deem a skill “very important” and the share who report that new graduates are “very prepared.” Some of the biggest gaps are in critical-thinking skills, problem-solving skills, and ability to work effectively in teams.
