Skills Gap

// What Are
Skills Gaps?

Many organizations struggle to find individuals with the skills they need, either due to a lack of qualified candidates or an inability to connect with them. To help meet the demand for qualified candidates, TALENT equips professionals with industry-focused skills and ensures employers know exactly where to find them.

Let's Close The Skills Gap

In Canada, there is a gap between the large numbers of post-secondary graduates, their respective training, and the needs of real-world employers. TALENT’s mission is to close this gap by better preparing students for future opportunities, and by better supporting employers to communicate their needs and connect with skilled professionals.
