A lack of skills or lack of communication?

There was an interesting video streamed in the Huffington Post on December 12, 2013 regarding the leeway being made by the Aspen Institute and JPMorgan Chase & Co. on the skills gap. They are saying that within the immediate future, more funding will be focused on training Canadians with the necessary skills to ensure that the skills needed in jobs can be successfully filled by Canadians. Even though it’s still vague whether the skills aren’t present or whether the high unemployment is due to a mismatch of skills and lack of communication between employers and potential employees, from the Aspen Institute and JPMorgan Chase & Co. feels the additional training could turn the unemployment rate around.

Check out the video and ideas from the Huffington Post on the plan of action regarding the mismatch of skills and lack of communication currently present.
