What Is a Skills Gap?

What Is A Skills Gap? We recently attended an economic development presentation hosted by the Chamber of Commerce. The discussion centered on solving the skills gap in our local market. It’s estimated that 11% of businesses believe that recent college graduates are prepared for work. Interestingly, 35% of those graduates believe they are prepared. What does it take to be prepared? Who is responsible for what it takes? If I was considering further education or career training I would want those answers. I’m not sure there’s a single answer though. Every career field is different. Just within the medical field there are differences in training requirements for various jobs. A doctor attends university level training in stages. First he has to earn a Bachelor degree to learn how to learn. Then several years of medical school after that to learn the mechanics of science and medicine. After that he has to do a residency where he gets a chance to apply what he learned in a learning/employment setting. And for the rest of his career he has to keep learning as new research develops new techniques to perform his job.

What Financial Literacy Month Means to You

Tax time. Nobody enjoys it very much, especially when you end up owing the IRS. Still, it makes April the perfect month to train our minds on becoming more financially savvy. Perhaps this is why April is specifically set aside as Financial Literacy Month. The aim is to teach us all to be more financially responsible and “achieve financial wellness.” At Career College of Northern Nevada, we fully support the idea of learning more about getting the most out of your finances and avoiding unnecessary debt.

Seven Reasons to Attend Trade School in Reno

Seven Reasons to Attend Trade School in Reno Study welding and fabrication, Health Information Management, Medical Assisting, Industrial Electronics and more fields at CCNN. Call 775-241-4445 TODAY to learn more! Ever wondered about the differences between a traditional four-year college and a trade school in Reno such as Career College of Northern Nevada? Some differences are obvious: with a trade school or career college, you enjoy a shorter length of time required to earn a degree along with intense specialization in a particular field. But beyond that, there are more subtle – but still significant – contrasts between the two. Many young students enter a four-year college setting with a vague idea of what they want to study. But it often takes two or three years of unrelated core classes before the students get to the heart of what they’ve come to learn about. By then, the student may have changed majors, further extending their college experience into a costly five- or six-year journey with no clear end game. A trade school, on the other hand, is all about laser focus. Read More: Seven Reasons to Attend Trade School in Reno - http://ccnn.edu/student-resources/top-trade-school-reno/
