Share your thoughts online about the 2013 State of St. Louis Workforce
We invite you to follow us on Twitter @stlworkforce and join the #STLworkforce ongoing conversation on the results of the 2013 State of St. Louis Workforce. This fifth annual regional research study, developed by the Workforce Solutions Group of St. Louis Community College, was presented to the largest public audience to date highlighting new employer perceptions on key talent development issues.
Find out what employers and other community leaders tweeted live at the event about these issues and what they are still buzzing about such as:
- What did employers say they thought were the reasons behind the skills gap?
- How do local employers value experience versus education?
- How do employers value online degrees versus traditional degrees?
- How do employers value degrees versus industry-recognized credentials?
- What are the top 30 certificates in greatest demand in the St. Louis metro area? Would you be able to name the top ten?
- And much more!
Samples of live tweets during the event:
