A New Generation Of Work
Now is the time...
There is a mismatch in today’s labor market between supply and demand.
[ MCKINSEY STUDY 2020 ]
An August 12, 2020 McKinsey Study entitled “How do American Workers Progress to Higher Wage Jobs” published that, within the next 5 years, there will be 27 million newly created roles in the US within the functional designations of virtual customer care, solar engineering, the medical field, sales and business operations to name a few. However, there is a population of people who are rarely considered for these in-demand jobs: the more than 70 million working American adults who have high-school diplomas but not bachelor’s degrees.
