About the Episode

About the Episode: Ryan Craig, managing director at Achieve Partners, joins us to discuss the transformative power of apprenticeships in reshaping the American workforce. Through an engaging conversation, Ryan unveils the concept of his recent book, "Apprentice Nation," which advocates for a significant expansion of apprenticeship programs as a solution to the skills and experience gaps plaguing the current job market. Highlighting the historical context and the need for a paradigm shift in education and employment, Ryan presents apprenticeships as a viable and necessary alternative to traditional college education.
