The mission of the Career Advisory Board is to provide insight, advice and counsel on trends, economic forces and cultural shifts that impact career opportunities for today and tomorrow.

Job Preparedness Indicator Study, December 2015

The 2015 Job Preparedness Indicator is the fifth annual survey designed to identify gaps between the skills candidates say they have and the skills employers seek to fill available positions. This year’s findings indicate an overall emphasis on character over skill and hiring manager receptiveness to career changers – tempered by the preference for candidates who have directly related experience. Based on the findings, Career Advisory Board members provide actionable advice for how job seekers can shift their mindsets and improve their marketability.
