Our challenge today is to give our people better job prospects – while also boosting European competitiveness.

 

Today’s businesses are all going digital and they all need skilled ICT workers. Yet at the moment there aren’t enough workers to meet that huge demand – we could soon have 900,000 unfilled vacancies, even at a time of high unemployment.

 

There are many possible reasons for this. Maybe people aren’t aware how attractive and enjoyable ICT careers can be; maybe our education systems aren’t giving them the skills businesses actually need; or maybe they don’t feel able to apply for jobs in other EU countries.

Egan added, “For Facebook, we have social plugins. We don’t use that data for an advertising purpose — we use it to personalize the data on those pages.
