Author Jeffrey A. Cantor, PhD, explains how modern-day apprenticeships can serve business owners in developing workers, parents in guiding their children into productive careers and professions, community leaders in instituting workforce development policies that support both entrepreneurs and citizens, and college educators in working more effectively with business and industry within our communities. This book describes real-world employer experiences with apprenticeship, offering insightful commentary on what works and doesn't work from their diverse perspectives—including employers abroad.
