Targeting talent: Miami-Dade County struggles to find qualified employees

Miami-Dade County ranks No. 8 in the nation for the number of college students per capita. Yet one of the biggest challenges for companies in Miami-Dade County is finding qualified employees. In response, a group of academic leaders in 2015 created Talent Development Network (TDN), a portal that links businesses and university students in the county for paid internships. TDN is “sort of Match.com meets LinkedIn for companies of all sizes to meet students,” says Joe Hovancak, vice president of One Community One Goal and strategic planning & market development at the Beacon Council, the county’s economic development partnership.
