Reported by EAB, a recent paper by the National Bureau of Economic Research hypothesizes that this proves specific skills, not specific workers or degree graduates are actually in demand.

The takeaway? How do we move to a more continuing education process for all our students – so they can continue to stay re-skilled moving forward, and continue to stay in high demand throughout their evolving careers?
