Back in March of this year, President Obama announced a new initiative, called Tech Hire. It’s a new campaign designed to get Americans more rapidly trained for high paying tech jobs.
The tech sector continually adds new jobs to the economy, and doesn’t have enough applicants to fill the vacancies.
The Obama Administration highlighted 20 communities already taking the lead - training students without a college degree for well paid tech careers. Among them was Tech Impact, a Delaware and Pennsylvania based organization which offers this training at no cost to students. Delaware Public Media’s Anne Hoffman has more what they’re doing.
