Bridging the Talent Gap

Education to Employment Partners, United Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce, Corpus Christi Independent School District, Corpus Christi Regional Economic Development Corporation, Coastal Bend Society for Human Resource Management, Del Mar College, Education to Employment Partners (Regional P16 Council), South Texas Economic Development Center, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and Workforce Solutions of the Coastal Bend are part of a national network of organizations known as The Graduate! Network.  This network is devoted to seeing more adults complete a college degree or other post-secondary credential and will soon launch an Employer Survey to identify and address skill shortages and opportunities for education partnerships across the Coastal Bend community.  The intent is to capture data to help state policymakers, educational institutions and training providers better understand the urgency of employers’ needs and take action.  Responses to this survey will provide valuable feedback and will help guide community-wide strategies for creating a work-ready Coastal Bend.
