Results from the IT Skills Panel Work Session Coming in June
Written by Maureen on February 6, 2013
The Center of Excellence for Information and Computing Technology hosted an IT Industry Skills Forum on Friday, March 22, 2013 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Bellevue College, in the East and West Board Rooms. The results from the work session will disseminated to the CTC system late May/early June 2013.
The Center wants to thank the 30+ IT industry professionals who attended and provided the Center with excellent insights and a myriad of great information that will in turn, be of use to the CTC system.
The purpose of this work session is to obtain “real time” information from IT industry professionals and leaders about expected job growth trends over the next three to five years and to discuss workforce skills gaps that make filling job vacancies difficult for employers within the industry.
We would like to invite you to this two-hour industry skills panel work session. You will be offered a stipend of $75, reimbursed for mileage, and provided with afternoon snacks and beverages. For those IT professionals coming from a distance, you will be reimbursed for one night at a hotel and per diem as well. Note: The East and West Board Rooms are in the B-Building on the 2nd floor next to the President’s Office, B201 (A&B).
You can register for the work session here. The two-hour work session includes a state of the IT industry from the Center, examples of Center partnerships with industry, an hour-long work session for IT professionals to share skill gaps, and new career pathway opportunities looking out to the next three to five years, and a quick overview of the AWB.
The Center will be sharing the session outcomes and implications with the CTC system after the work session.
