building the ICT workforce of the future
As Information/Communications/Technology (ICT) businesses continue to boom in the East Bay, some assume that a career in ICT is only for those with advanced degrees or the most developed professional networks. The business champions and community partners at the East Bay ICT Partnership disagree.
Employers want to hire East Bay residents. Locals employees have a connection to the community and prove more productive than their colleagues who suffer through long commutes from neighboring regions.
At the Partnership we are aligning the needs of employers with education/training programs to ensure that ICT companies thrive on local talent.
Because when they thrive on local talent, everyone benefits.
