Poor Info on Career Opportunities Is Costing Students Jobs

Nearly half of young people in the U.K. are missing out on career opportunities due to a lack of information from schools and universities, despite having the skills employers want, according to a new CompTIA survey. The new research reveals that 41 percent of students do not feel well-informed about the range of careers open to them. Only 13 percent feel their education institutions have fully equipped them to make career decisions. CompTIA surveyed more than 1,000 students to understand what motivates them. The survey is part of a drive to address the huge skills gap in IT and technology careers in the U.K.
