Creating Sustainable Careers in Information Technology

In 2012, the Creating IT Futures Foundation launched the IT-Ready Apprentice Program in Cincinnati and Minneapolis / St. Paul to bring individuals in need of opportunity into the IT field.

Our white paper, "Finding a Sustainable Career in Information Technology: First-Year Results of the IT-Ready Apprentice Program," reports outcomes from the first year and touches on the following topics to help the industry grow the IT workforce and find the technical candidates they need to maintain and grow their businesses:

  • The IT skills-gap challenge and what can be done to address it.
  • Participant outcomes for graduation, certification and apprenticeship placement.
  • How applicants are screened to ensure they are a good fit for a technical skills development program.
  • Participating employers and what they look for in an entry-level IT worker.
