Advance Your Technology Workforce with CompTIA Membership
The skills gap is an ongoing issue in the technology industry. While jobs are plentiful and employers are beginning to recognize non-traditional paths to an IT career, finding and retaining talent remains problematic. And that’s not the only hurdle. Tech employers also need to pay close attention to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) and shift workplace cultures to support these initiatives. How do we accomplish all of these things to advance the technology industry and your business?
“Looking ahead, the need for professionals from all backgrounds to develop, support and protect these technologies will continue to grow,” said Todd Thibodeaux, president and CEO of CompTIA in a recent press release about technology job growth. “We have a tremendous opportunity and responsibility to mobilize the best ideas and resources across our industry members, learning partners and government to build on the progress we’ve made.”
