Posted on February 6, 2018 By

It seems employers have a difficult time finding job seekers who have the skills needed for work today. In other words, a skills gap exists. What does that mean? A panel of professional experts from many industries will discuss the skills needed for jobs now and in the future at a free panel discussion and networking event on March 20, 2018, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Monmouth University, Young Auditorium in Bey Hall, School of Business, Long Branch.

Sponsors include Jersey Shore Association of Human Resources (JSAHR); Monmouth County Division of Workforce Development (MCDWD); The Department of Psychology, Monmouth University; and the Human Resources Club, Monmouth University.

In addition, the panel will discuss opportunities available to students throughout Monmouth County and surrounding areas; transferable skills; existing pathways in industries and across industries; the most desirable technology skills and soft skills; challenges facing the workforce to grow in this century; the pros and cons of the many generations in today’s workforce; and the “Gig Economy.”
