High ROI for Workforce Investment
Understanding where to invest workforce dollars can be challenging. Ideally, investments should focus on expanding industries, requiring an influx of new and re-trained talent, paying above-market wages and improving the quality of life for constituents. The speed and scope of innovation are upending the way we work. Labor market demands are shifting and there is a great need for people with IT skills.
- Entry-level IT jobs do not necessarily require a four-year degree.
- With quality training and certifications, students can acquire knowledge and skills to become web developers, mobile application developers, data administrators, computer support specialists and network support specialists.
- IT offers lucrative and critically important careers in today’s digital economy.
Communities capable of providing a steady and reinforced pipeline of tech talent will attract employers and an increased tax base thanks to computer and information technology occupation median annual wages that are more than double the median annual wage for all occupations.
