A TechHire City
What is TechHire?
The designation is a part of a national initiative that partners data and resources from organizations like LinkedIn, Cisco, Glassdoor and many other large companies; to create innovative local hiring practices and training programs.
TalTech Alliance Supports TechHire
Our organization has been heavily involved in a collaborative effort, spearheaded by Mayor Andrew Gillum’s Office, which has brought together training organizations such as TCC, CareerSource, Domi Station, and the Universities; local networking organizations like the Florida IT Career Alliance, AERO, and TalTech; and a number of our biggest tech employers to begin to formulate how we can best address the talent gap that exists in our community.
Our Local Tech Wordforce
In Tallahassee, there are currently over 500 open Tech jobs. In order to fill these positions, we must identify the skills that employers need from our local and regional workforce, and invest in programs that rapidly train both underrepresented groups and university graduates to immediately plug in to these rapidly changing opportunities.
What Can You Do?
As a first step, the Office of the Mayor has created the TechHire Talent Survey to help identify what the talent gaps are in the Tallahassee region; in order to help design programs and practices to meet these skill needs. Please take five minutes to fill it out, and encourage others to do so as well. Thank you for helping us support this important initiative.
