According to AdWeek, a recent report from the Advertising Education Foundation says there are four key reasons for what may be a disconnect between ad agencies and marketers, tech companies, academics and students:
  1. The digital transformation of the ad industry
  2. Increased competition from tech companies
  3. Millennials' differing expectations of work environment, job responsibilities and career advancement
  4. Academic curricula not keeping pace with the rapid changes in the industry.

Are there OTHER REASONS we're missing?  How do our industry's "seasoned veterans" feel about the issue?  Or what about those students who are waiting tables or bartending, having found no job?  What's YOUR opinion? Be there and we'll give YOU a chance to speak up with your thoughts about this.  Promises to be a hot discussion!
