A skill gap is defined as a lack of fundamental reading, writing, mathematical or communication skills employers require for a work environment that’s efficient and operates smoothly. This gap makes it difficult for employers to fill positions. A skills gap isn’t always attributed by a lack of education, mainly because there are situations where an employee or job candidate can be overeducated. Besides education, a skills gap might also be attributed by persistent unemployment. Some of the skills needed to work contemporary technologies can be just as hard to measure as they are to manage, which can make the definition of a skill gap to be even more convoluted.
