Summary Description

More than 30 million Americans are unemployed, underemployed, or have given up on looking for a job.  Undoubtedly, the massive economic downturn after the financial crisis of 2007-2008 is a key factor in this situation.  But the reason why the U.S. job market has stalled is not because employers cannot create enough jobs for the workers.  The real problem is that our nation is failing to produce workers with the right skills.

Our summary of Future Jobs:  Solving the Employment and Skills Crisis, by Edward E. Gordon, provides practical information for businesses seeking qualified workers, unemployed or underemployed individuals, and those interested in changing careers.

Gordon is an internationally recognized writer, researcher, speaker, and consultant on the future of the workforce in America and the world, educational preparation for jobs and careers, and regional economic development.  His prior books include Winning the Global Talent Showdown, The 2010 Meltdown:  Solving the Impending Jobs Crisis, Skill Wars,and FutureWork.  He is president of Imperial Consulting.

This summary, recorded by Gordon, reveals the most promising jobs and careers of the next decade for early-career job seekers and workers with established careers looking to change their path, and offers powerful strategies for solving the jobs and skills disconnect in America.
