The Skills Gap in America
In America today, there are 5.6 million unfilled jobs in skilled industries such as construction and manufacturing, 75% of which require no additional degree beyond a high school diploma or GED.
For employers, the challenge of attracting interested and work-ready talent can stunt growth or cost companies millions in quality, productivity and sales. Compounding this, many jobs have high turnover rates because candidates lacks basic awareness about a job or the skills and behaviors needed to be successful.
Through mobile video games, our partners have successfully connected with hundreds of job seekers interested in their training and career opportunities; many of whom would otherwise not have know about these opportunities. By making career exploration fun, informative and free, individuals are not only able to discover the opportunities available to them but more fully understand the responsibilities required of them before starting a job.
