Professional development: Make time because it matters
Business2Community
You've saved, invested and finally purchased your dream home, which includes every high-end finish and furnishing you've imagined. Unfortunately, you can never seem to find time for its upkeep and maintenance. You ultimately delay necessary repairs or ignore them altogether. You're just too busy! This sounds absolutely crazy, right!? Coincidentally, this scenario reflects a reality for far too many PR and communications professionals when it comes to professional development.

Building a workforce to meet our economic needs
The Hill
As our economy continues to struggle to maintain momentum and consistently create jobs, the construction industry remains a source of untapped potential. For generations, the construction industry has provided excellent career opportunities for millions of American workers. Unlike other industries, construction cannot offshore or outsource its jobs, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that the construction industry’s need for workers will grow twice as fast as the average for all industries. This growth, combined with an aging workforce, is projected to create a shortage of 1.6 million workers by 2022. To put this into perspective, the 1.6 million jobs projected to be available in the construction industry alone is nearly double the number of jobs created across all industries so far in 2014.
