The skills gap is real, and although it’s a primary talking point of pundits and others it should be equally important to everyone. There is a common misconception that there are plenty of hire-able people in our country who are fully capable of stepping into various technological and manufacturing type jobs, but not everyone wants to work. But there is a very real gap in workers who have the experience and training to work with modern technologies. It’s becoming a cliché, but it’s a cliché because it’s true: technology is always changing. And modern manufacturers like the professionals at NW Industries embrace these innovations to produce a product that is both superb and cost-effective. There are other things that divide the talented working folks in our country, and not all manufacturers use NW Industries team-oriented approach to producing a product.
When we talk about skills gaps created by innovative and ever-evolving technologies, it’s easier to provide a narrow-lensed example that represents the current problem. The profession of graphic design is constantly in flux. Graphic design was an enormously popular and in-demand profession from the earliest eras of print and extending well-into in the sophomore years of the internet boom. But as technologies became better, and a person could access information on different devices, graphic designers had to constantly retrain themselves to make their work accessible on numerous platforms, many of which developed at unprecedented speed.
