ACICS Releases Underemployed Generation Research Findings
ACICS recently commissioned a survey of underemployed Americans ages 21 to 35 to examine today’s competitive job market, which favors those with practical skills and experience. The survey revealed that many young Americans have education-related regrets and lack enthusiasm for their current – and often “mismatched” – jobs.
The findings – as well as other considerations regarding the persistence of underemployment – were discussed as part of a National Journal policy briefing. Moderated by National Journal Correspondent, Fawn Johnson, the conversation explored the future of post-secondary education, solutions to America’s underemployment crisis, and ways to transform both our workforce and economy.
