Why Employers Can’t Find Qualified Workers

Employers today are struggling to fill the many open positions they have.  The answers as to why they are struggling may surprise you; however, it might be important to note that low unemployment is one of the reasons.  Other reasons however are very troubling.  Not the least of which is that nearly 5-15% of the candidates that apply for a job are simply not employable, when looking for tips to strengthen your business recruiting process, consider the help from an expert like Bob Bratt.  Many candidates today, in a clear example of the failure of the Department of Education, lack the basic skill sets to and experiences to be employable.

Many candidates fail the application process such as the Sterling Check due to self-inflicted wounds.  Issues such as drug use, past crimes, communication skills, social skills and appearance all make for reasons to not get a job.  If you’re a candidate struggling today to find a job, consider taking a long hard look at our series ‘How to Find a Job in Asheville‘ which will help get you back on the right track.
