DESCRIPTION
There are currently more than 31,000 open computing jobs in New York and only 3,575 computer science graduates to fill them.

The demand for skilled technical employees far outpacing the supply, companies are starting to review hiring practices and requirements in order to open the door for more candidates to join their ranks.

Dev Bootcamp and Kenzan are partnering to host this event and bring together NYC-area tech companies, educational resources and industry experts for a conversation about the technology skills gap. Our industry experts from Uncubed, Andela and Dev Bootcamp will address these questions and more:

What are the in-demand tech skills companies are looking for?

How do soft skills make a candidate more attractive?

What are the challenges tech companies face when looking for tech talent?

Why candidates without a 4-year college degree shouldn't be overlooked.

How can tech companies and educational organizations can work together to grow the talent pipeline?

How can tech companies support their employees through continued education and development?
