Why apprenticeship is
the modern IT talent solution
We need a scalable talent solution to face Detroit’s IT workforce gaps. Apprenticeship, through the Apprenti program, allows qualified job seekers to get their foot in the door and prove themselves. It also allows employers to save on hiring costs and find qualified talent. A modern blend of training and hiring, IT apprenticeship is a time-tested solution for a modern world.
DETROIT'S EXPLOSIVE IT GROWTH
Why Detroit is the new tech epicenter
The birthplace of the auto industry, Detroit has brought us the invention of moving assembly lines, traffic lights, and paved roads. Now, Detroit is where data integration, the auto industry, and the IOT come together. The hotspot to the right shows total IT job postings by city, and clearly, Detroit is the epicenter.
Detroit's IT workforce gaps
Future-facing Detroit companies need talent. Corporations like yours are seeking home-grown tech talent, and we need to broaden our hiring diversity. Only demographic diversity—people of many backgrounds, races, and thought processes—can help us take on the challenge of a multifaceted tech landscape. How do corporations find bright minds with the aptitude to take on the changing landscape? And how do forward-thinking job seekers find employers ready to take the world of connected tech by storm? Detroit faces huge workforce gaps—and at ODT, we like to think of these gaps as opportunities to connect.
