The latest research shows that job knowledge is vital to a successful workforce, but that not enough people know it.
The job-knowledge gap in the United States is large, with people without the skills to complete their jobs at all.
About 1 in 4 adults without a high school diploma are unemployed or underemployed.
About 30 percent of adults without college degrees are unemployed, and that number is increasing rapidly, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
In addition to the unemployment rate, there are many reasons why people are unable to learn or retain information about their jobs, including the fact that the job doesn’t pay a living wage, they lack an education, or the job requires special training.
One of the most effective ways to build a career is to find a job that pays well.
Learn the skills you need to succeed in your field, and you will find a great job that will keep you on your feet for years to come.
The new job-knowledge graph from Knowledge Graphs shows that the skills needed to be successful in your current job are largely unknown.
People without a college degree are less likely to know about the job-skill gap, and those with no high school education or less are much more likely to lack skills that can support success in a new job.
People with advanced degrees in certain fields are also more likely than those without them to lack the skills that are needed to learn, or are less able to acquire those skills.
People who are unemployed have lower levels of job- knowledge than those who are working.
The average person without a diploma or degree who is unemployed has a high degree of unemployment, but those who do have a high college degree or higher are about half as likely to be unemployed.
Job-knowledge gaps in the U.S. are growing rapidly.
More than a quarter of adults with no college education are unemployed in the country, and about one in five have not completed a high-school diploma.
About a quarter are underemed.
Job skills are often lacking in the workplace.
For example, less than half of those who have a college education or more have the necessary skills to do basic work such as answering phone calls and doing housework, according the Bureau.
A recent survey from KnowledgeGraphs showed that only 16 percent of people without a degree had the knowledge needed to complete a job, compared to about 43 percent of those with a high level of education.
The number of people with college or advanced degrees is also much higher: 16 percent, versus 7 percent, of those without a job.
The lack of knowledge can lead to a lot of wasted time and effort.
For instance, the job of a caretaker might require the ability to perform tasks that require physical strength or physical dexterity.
Some of the tasks involve lifting and moving objects or even lifting and carrying heavy objects, which is difficult and can put you at risk for injury.
