Matt Sigelman, CEO of Burning Glass Technologies, presents and talks with Montserrat Gomendio, Director of the OECD Centre for Skills, on the importance of skills, beyond specific educational qualifications, for accessing more job opportunities. Sigelman has seen how the labour market is becoming increasingly interrelated and looks for mixed skills. Universities, and higher education in general, must ensure that these skills, which is the real key to employability, are provided in education and are also aligned with the needs of the labour market.
