Two in five technology job applicants don’t have the right technical chops, survey finds | ZDNet

There are may frustrations around trying to develop High Quality Registered Apprenticeships in USA, especially in industries where Apprenticeships have not traditionally been used.

There are two statements that really do make me start and ask questions of employers (below) about their steadfast and now clearly flawed views that there is only one way to find the Tech talent they need.

If you keep on doing what you are doing and keep on getting the same result that’s madness right!!

This article states:

“Just about everyone appears to be feeling the pinch of the skills gap — 80 percent agree (31 percent strongly) that there is a talent gap that is inhibiting their ability to fill open positions within their enterprises”

I agree with this, I see, it and hear it just about every day. But don’t keep just complaining about it and blaming everyone else, when there is a solution right in front of you, if you could only drop the skills snobbery that exists within the Tech Sector as a whole.

Registered Apprenticeships are available across the USA and they are available in most of the job roles that are highlighted in this article.

I also agree with this comment in the article too.

Employers should take a deep look inside their own culture and practices to make sure they’re not repelling talent. “Blaming the state of the labor market for a company’s flawed personnel strategy”

I have been involved in developing Apprenticeships around the world for 25 years, working with employers who have these exact problems, stopping them from getting more business and hampering their growth.

PLEASE at least take some time to consider this option is Apprenticeships, you honestly have nothing to loose except still having those open vacancies in your business in 6 months because you didn’t put the effort in!!

Our whole strategy at TranZed Apprenticeships and Open 4 Apprenticeships, is to be in a place where every hiring manager will look at a vacant job and ask themselves “I wonder if an apprentices could fill roll”.

8 words that will change the face of your business and also start and close the skills gap that you have.

Message me on championp@tranzed.org and visit www.tranzedapprenticeships.com or www.openforapprenticeships.com for more info.

I will give you impartial and honest advice about how you can access Apprenticeships wherever you are.

Stop worrying about those vacancies and start filling them!!
