    This is an interesting article, mostly because I could see a new job opportunity opening here. If the problem is companies aren't finding enough qualified candidates (and the only seekers are entry level seekers) then, shouldn't there be a market for internships and companies willing to train job seekers? Maybe the government should start putting money into internship programs to ready the entry level job seekers.

    Hmmm...

    It seems as if human resources and management need to rethink their position.

    A service coordinator position, knocking back someone with a bachelors degree in mathematics, or even an office clerk? I know that role, and an office clerk could easily fill it with a fortnights training.

    Can't find employees? That's not the job markets fault, that's the companies. Arby, the fault lies with the company, the government shouldn't have to fund anything.

    I can understand the medical profession though. But the government doesn't subsidise the medical degrees in the US, so there's not enough people being trained.

    Well, yes. Brilliant.
    Or someone could start a "grooming" company.

    These companies need to realize that many skills are transferrable. They're probably passing over great people because they are looking for a 100% perfect fit, i.e. someone who has done the exact same job before (and left it) instead of looking for someone with solid skills, the ability to learn quickly, work hard, and a desire to grow professionally. THAT kind of thing is money in the bank, if you ask me, and that is what I'd be looking for if I were a hiring professional.
