Ready to Go; Ready to Hire

On September 19th, 2016 a diverse mix of learners joined us for the second session of Academy Pittsburgh. Drawn from all over the Pittsburgh region, participants came ready to sharpen new skills. Included in this session are teachers, designers, and former staffing industry workers all looking for economic advantage through a career in tech. Their personal stories reflect a the larger national conversation around equitable employment and higher education that generates opportunity not just debt.

After 12 weeks of immersive, real-world skill building, #AcademyPGH2 participants are eager to enter the job market and apply what they’ve learned. If your organization has open internships or entry-level position, or if you’d like to share your experience as a part of the technology workforce, please reach out.
