MEMPHIS CROSSROADS: Now Hiring

According to the most recent September 2014 statistics, at least 9.3 percent of Memphis-area residents are unemployed. Ask many of those people why they fall in that category and a frequent answer will be, “There are no jobs out there.”

But the truth is there ARE jobs out there; however, a great number of the Memphis labor force lacks the skills to fill them. In 2013, nearly 18,000 jobs in the Greater Memphis Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) went unfilled. According to the Brookings Institution, a nonprofit think tank in Washington, D.C., MSA ranks 86 out of the nation’s 100 largest metropolitan areas on the Skills Gap index, meaning, despite the city’s large labor pool, employers here are struggling to find qualified workers at all skill levels to fill their open positions.
