With the economy on solid footing, an old problem has re-emerged: Employers increasingly say they can't find the right employees to fill vacancies.

A new Harris poll finds that 49% of employers have experienced a negative impact on their business due to extended job vacancies. The skills gap is a particular problem for employers that need college-educated employees. Example: 157,591 people graduated with degrees in computer and information sciences in 2014, a 41% increase since 2009. But an average of almost 500,000 IT jobs went unfilled each month last year.
