Tech Jobs Tour Providence | Career Fair, Tech Demos + Speed Mentoring
Providence, RI | 5:00 – 10:00 pm | @TECHJOBSTOUR #AMERICAISHIRING
This tour will bring together diverse and non-traditional talent with companies who need their skills the most. Right now America has over 500,000 open tech jobs – by 2020 this number will grow to over 1 million. At the time same time, over 60% of all new coders, engineers and data scientists are emerging from bootcamps and industry-current vocational schools. We are connecting the current and next generation of technical talent, which happens to be more diverse. That’s right. Women, people of color, and LGBTQ people are opting for more affordable and accessible coding bootcamps and online education programs over 4-year computer science degrees.
