Description

Why are there 4 million open jobs at a time when over 10 million Americans are unemployed? How can you be competitive in today's job market? In March I am piloting a one-page professional development planning tool that I call the "Take Charge of Your Learning" Plan. This is the slideshow from the workshop.

4.0 Million Job Openings in December, but… 10.4 Million Unemployed Americans. Why??
