Karen Ross Discusses Tech Skills Gap with TechRepublic

Our CEO Karen Ross spoke with TechRepublic’s Dan Patterson to discuss how veterans can help fill the tech skills gap with the over 500,000 unfilled roles in the technology sector.

“The skill gap is actually not as great as what people think,” Ross said. However with the decline of H-1B visas, veterans are having difficulty finding appropriate work equivalent to what they were doing in the military.

The skills gap exists mostly in development and programming, she said. The issue is that employers don’t understand how to translate a veteran’s previous military operational specialty into a position that applies in the workplace.
