There are currently more than 31,000 open computing jobs in New York & 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 & requirements in order to open the door for more candidates to join their ranks.
Dev Bootcamp & Kenzan are partnering to host this event & bring together NYC-area tech companies, educational resources & industry experts for a conversation about the technology skills gap. Our industry experts from Uncubed, Andela & Dev Bootcamp will address these questions & 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 & educational organizations can work together to grow the talent pipeline?
How can tech companies support their employees through continued education & development?
