If you’ve done any interviewing recently, you might be surprised about the lack of job readiness in candidates. It seems that although many people need jobs, they haven’t taken the necessary steps to prepare for it.
In this issue of our newsletter we focus on three areas:
- A model program at Medical Lake High School where they are preparing the workforce of the future with online career and technical education training.
- A company in Vancouver called Silicon Forest Electronics that does pre-employment testing to ensure job readiness for candidates.
- Our perspective at the Center of Excellence for Aerospace and Advanced Manufacturing on job readiness, pre-employment testing and national career certifications.
