Saying You Can’t Find Talent is Like Saying You Can’t Find Anything to Watch on T.V.

Below is an excerpt of my latest article published by ERE.net.  Please read the entirety here: http://www.ere.net/2013/02/05/saying-you-cant-find-talent-is-like-saying-you-cant-find-anything-to-watch-on-tv/

For those not familiar with this idea of a talent shortage, it is born from the fact that 49% of current U.S. employers, according to a study conducted by Manpower, cannot find qualified people for their open positions. When you hear this statistic you perhaps jump to the conclusion that if companies can’t find qualified people, then qualified people must not exist. Hence, a talent shortage must exist.

This is flawed thinking.  What may actually be occurring is employers keep flipping the channel hoping to find something better to watch.
