On April 27, the Tech Jobs Tour made a stop in Portland and drew over 400 people. Worksystems was a featured speaker at the event and spoke to the crowd about IT job training and employment opportunities in the Portland Metro Region.
Attendees participated in a career fair, speed mentoring, product demos, a coding bootcamp, and engaged in ultra-diverse networking. Numerous local tech companies attended looking to connect with local job seekers.
There are currently 1000+ tech job postings in the Portland Metro Region.
The Tech Jobs Tour was hosted by Tech Hire, a national effort to expand local tech sectors by building the IT talent pipeline in communities across the country. Worksystems successfully had the Portland Metro Region designated as a Tech Hire community in 2015 and invests several million dollars to support IT job training and placement in our region.
