"Middle Skills" jobs & digital literacy

    Very interesting report from burning glass and Capital One.

    Few good tidbits:
    Middle-skill jobs, defined as those that typically require less than a bachelor's degree while paying a living wage, ² comprise 46% of overall labor demand...More than 8 in 10 middle-skill jobs (82%) require digital skills
    ...
    While advanced digital skills, especially coding and programming, are in high demand in high-skill occupations, there is a large set of digital skills that open opportunities for middle-skill workers. Basic CRM skills, such as use of Salesforce, and social media skills, are door openers into several high-paying career areas.
