Remind me just in time
As technology bleeds its way into every human interaction and our web industry morphs into an Internet of Things, we’re faced with a problem: how do we prepare new hires for work that is changing right under our feet? Governments are scrambling to close the skills gap, companies can’t find and keep great talent, and graduates are struggling to pay loan debt while working for minimum wage and searching for career opportunities that often exclude entry level skills. Something is broken.
Meet a panel of experts who have been implementing another approach: apprenticeship. It’s an old concept with a new format. The apprenticeship is back. Maybe it never left.
