All of the above? ;)
Yes- all of the above?
Interesting to think about how many of the occupations in shortage could be served virtually.
Are the rest of you seeing the screens? Mine has stalled on the shifting opportunities slide...
Things are changing on my end
Challenge- so much attention on services industries . How do we grow the economy as well?
It's amazing how quickly things change. We need to remain aware of the recent changes.
If so many positions will have shortages, is there any effort to re-align industries or share between industries?
Liz, feel free to share your thoughts/questions - you're unmuted
Surprising: SOO many career clusters are in demand, often times it's ALL of the clusters in a career field.
Erin, you did a fantastic job of concisely sharing this information! Thank you. One of the issues I see as a challenge is implementing the certification programs at the secondary levels due to lack of funding and preoccupation responding currently to COVID and community/parent needs -
@Kari-Ann: Thanks for your comment! Check out all our CTE reports here http://www.realtimetalent.org/research-2/cte-pathways/

Check out more reports on the impact of COVID19 here as well! http://www.realtimetalent.org/insights-2/
Instilling a growth mindset in all job seekers to consider training and jobs that they haven't considered in the past.
We need students and parents to have more awareness of the future workforce needs.
Attention to connecting these data point with awareness of the solutions CTE can bring
from @DEan - flexible programming for aligning to workforce needs
High schools and career influencers need to prepare more students for CTE fields rather than bachelors degree focused
from @Shannon - Yes Leah!
Thank you Erin and panel!
