The Digital Talent Gap Series: Searching for Talent in the Digital Space

BY SHAY RUGGLES

At Carbon8, we're always circulating our fun finds from the web and sometimes they spark a real conversation (read: heated discussion).

That is exactly what happened when we found the infographic posted on AdWeek, There Is a Digital Talent Gap by Lucia Moses.

The series discusses the vast gap marketing execs and agencies are finding between the talent pool and the talent needed.

Since we're still fairly small, almost everyone at Carbon8 participates in our talent search and interview process. We've had our challenges finding good talent, but overall we have found some fantastic new team members over the years and feel there is still hope. We decided to put together a little mini-series sharing our own stories and opinions on the topic.

We will be posting stories from me, Shay Ruggles and a few of our account managers, Kristi Petrie, Katherine Roberts and Lisa Hillmer-Poole. We hope you enjoy reading our thoughts on the subject and we hope to hear yours as well in the comments!
