By 2020 there will be 1 million more tech jobs in the U.S. than qualified people to fill them. According to the Department of Labor, even if every college and university were at max capacity with a graduation rate of 100% graduating everyone they could, they would produce only graduate 29% of the needed tech talent in the next 6 years. In Oregon alone, we are expecting 10,000 tech jobs by 2020. These careers in technology pay entry level salaries of 45-70K and do not require a degree.
In order to prepare Oregonians for in-demand tech jobs, Worksystems has partnered with Treehouse to launch Code Oregon, an online platform providing training in web design and development and in web applications and mobile design.
