Addressing the Skills Gap
The online learning platform Udemy recently did a study to examine how the skills gap is impacting the American workforce. Shelley Osborn, Head of Learning and Development at Udemy, joins Cheddar to break down what the study found. Americans, in general, feel confident that the country is closing the skills gap. On an individual level, 78% of American workers feel they have above-average skills for their current job. The majority of workers identified soft skills as the most important. Communication came in at 56%, critical thinking was most valued by 54%, and teamwork was identified by 42% as the most important skill. Perhaps most interestingly, Udemy found that 24% of the millennials they surveyed have lied about skills on their resume to get better jobs.
