Industry today is facing a high rate of turnover due to the aging of the curent workforce. This high rate of turnover, coupled with the tumultuous global marketplace, increases the demand for individuals who have the ability to step into a position and run with it. Education successfully produces individuals with classroom/technical knowledge but lacks the basic soft skills and hands-on experiences sought after by industry. It is for this reason that education and industry must work together to produce the workforce of the next generation.
