Employers are looking for talent in every crack and crevice trying to find tech savvy workers up on the latest trends. 

Companies like IBM have shared that 15 percent of the people they hire each year in the U.S. don't have a bachelor's degree. IBM's program called New Collar focuses on getting more employees without four-year college degrees. Training instiutions like coding boot camps or community colleges sources prove to be relevant sources for new hires.

Information Technology has already become an enormous part of industry and the demand for increased efficiency will only grow along with the skills needed to maintain it. We want the talent they are looking for to be right outside of their front door. Sam Ladah, VIP of Human Resources at IBM, said, "if we're going to address the skills gap, we've got to think differently about where we're recruiting and who we're recruiting."

The tech jobs of today are not only limited to tech companies, but cover a wide range of potential opportunities. Technology is re-shaping almost every industry, creating new jobs requiring new skills. It’s projected that tech jobs will experience a 12% increase in demand by the year 2024, opening approximately 488,500 new jobs.


In addition to a hands-on educational experience, tech training institutions become the targeted supplier of talent for many high-profile companies shopping for employees ready to go on day one. Lasting career choices follow trends and demand, and the demand for talent in the tech industry is in high gear as technology remains one of the strongest sectors in the U.S. Economy.

Technology training facilities, like Tech901, are trying to meet demand head-on, by providing quality education to individuals who are ready and willing to make the leap and take on a career in the field of technology. After training, Tech901 graduates have a step-up in the job-hunting game, with connections directly to technician jobs and paid internships in Memphis after graudation. We currently have alumni successfully employed in tech jobs with FedEx, ServiceMaster, Methodist Heathlcare, Memphis Computer Support, and more!
