Technology giant Microsoft has nearly 3,000 jobs available — and yet is having trouble finding qualified people to fill them.

As a result, the company may send those jobs overseas.  Frank Keith, founder and executive director of Burlington County College’s business incubator, used that anecdote to explain why a trained workforce is so critical to America’s future.

Keith and other college and business leaders spoke to about 90 people at the Enterprise Center at the college’s Route 38 campus last Monday morning.  See Chris Bishop's article in the Burlington County Times.
