IN THIS SUMMARY

Despite high unemployment numbers, even among college-educated workers, employers complain that they cannot find qualified candidates to hire. These companies often state that job candidates do not have the skills necessary to start work immediately and make significant contributions. Schools are often blamed for failing to adequately train the incoming workforce; however, in Why Good People Can’t Get Jobs, Peter Cappelli takes a closer look at the problem and reveals that employers often have unrealistic expectations regarding the readiness of new employees.
