TechHire connects overlooked and underrepresented job seekers into open IT jobs. We are building networks across the country of employers, training providers, and community organizations - all committed to building a labor market that embraces hiring practices based on skills, not resume or pedigree.
We work with 51 communities (and growing) around the country that are building local ecosystems to implement TechHire activities. As part of this work, we build tools and resources for them to utilize in community outreach and engagement.
TechHire has four key stakeholders:
1. Overlooked and underrepresented job seekers in IT - minorities, women, veterans, individuals without a computer science degree, and others underrepresented in tech
2. Employers - willing to hire based on skill and not screen out individuals that falls into any of the categories above
3. Training Providers - accelerated programs teaching in-demand IT skills with a key focus on accessibility and job placement
4. Community Based Organizations - local government, workforce development, and other community leaders committed to building and supporting TechHire
