    Prevent Unemployment + Underemployment!

    According to employer surveys conducted by Adecco, a staffing company, 1 in 5 employers worldwide cannot fill positions because 44% of applicants are lacking soft skills such as communication, critical thinking, creativity and collaboration. In addition, a survey from Gradstaff (now Avenica), a career mathchmaking firm for college graduates, revealed inefficient career preparation, job search methods and entry level recruiting tactics.
