"The Indiana Career Council will help tie career preparation programs to the expectations of employers. This is a crucial step to closing the skills gap that is holding many Hoosiers back from attaining today’s open jobs. The council will allow for seamless communication between those who train our workforce and those who hire."
This goes hand in hand with my emphasis on education and on quality of life. We cannot talk new jobs – i.e. economic development – without a major commitment to education. New people and employers won’t move to areas with weak educational systems that produce an ill-prepared workforce.
