Building Delaware’s Technology Talent
Employers and talented individuals are missing out on opportunities for growth in the tech industry. There are more ways than ever before to learn new tech skills. That means more people, from all walks of life, are pursuing training with the hopes of a great career in technology waiting for them on the other side.
Tech Hire Delaware, a program of Tech Impact, is making it easier for all people to launch a career in tech and is recruiting hundreds of Delaware residents into technology certificate and accelerated training programs. While in training, recruits receive career counseling to help them with interview skills, resume building, and workplace etiquette. Once training is complete, Tech Hire Delaware will work to connect candidates with employers seeking tech talent.
This is just the beginning of what we hope will be a long-term approach to cultivating a skilled workforce in our state. Modern and accessible methods of education are key to building a strong, skilled, and diverse talent pool, and the creation of an Industry Council is in place to steer this long-term initiative.
