A group of Inland Empire employers met Tuesday and were asked, “How many of you have had a technical skills opening for the last three months?”
Every hand in the room went up.
Those employers who are in need of maintenance technicians and mechanics and electrical technicians and electricians were of one mind. The skills gap is real.
The meeting was held to promote a new paid internship program at Chaffey College’s Industrial Technical Learning Center, or InTech, in Fontana.
