Survey Results 
Based on a recent survey asked by Google of US Employers -  We asked the same - "Skills Needed for Employment" - Here's Our Chamber's Early Results 
  • Communication 31%
  • Teamwork 23%
  • Problem Solving 20%
  • Critical Thinking 12%
  • Collaboration 8%
  • Leadership 4%
  • Curiosity 4%
  • Digital Literacy 0%
  • Creativity 0%
Google shared with these same Employers they surveyed about skills NEEDED for a digitalized world.....
  • Critical Thinking 100%
  • Problem Solving 100%
  • Collaboration 100%
  • Communication 100%
  • Digital Literacy 100%
  • Curiosity 100%
All 6 of the above skills integrate together to address the needs of the current and future digitalized world.

Jaime Casap  
is the Education Evangelist at Google.  Recently, he shared with a group of Chamber Executives from the Western States the above information in reference to what our current and future employers will be seeking.  Gives us food for thought for future employment needs.

More Than Just an Accountant
Recognize the picture above? That's a
Satterlee surgical bone saw. You can buy it online for about $20, and you'll have all you need for complicated orthopedic surgeries. But just because you can buy the tool doesn't mean you're trained for the job.

The same thing goes for taxes. You can buy fully functional tax-prep software anywhere. But are you really trained to do it right yourself?
