Software Developers and Quality Assurance Analysts Roundtable
Tuesday March 8, 2:30 PM – 3:30 PM
The Problem: Web developer candidates are increasingly in demand, but there aren’t enough candidates to fill the positions!
This decade alone, there’s a 26% projected growth rate for web developers. At that rate, businesses can’t afford to rely on junior and senior-level candidates; you need new graduates, too! However, many job descriptions still call for prior experience—and understandably so, as these are highly-skilled positions.
The Solution: Local partnerships!
What if we started by bolstering the education itself? Local workforce centers often have grant funding available to pay wages and provide Workers’ Compensation during interns’ time with your business. Together, we can close the gap in candidates and make sure the ones walking through your door are well-equipped —thanks to your vital feedback from the beginning!
We would love to hear from you: what skills should a web developer learn in school? Regis University would like to hear from you so they can shape their students’ education to best fit your hiring needs. Please join other local IT businesses, Regis University, and Jefferson County Business & Workforce Center for a virtual discussion about shaping education to fit the future of work!
