SEDC’s Advance Saratoga initiatives prioritized workforce development to better align employers needs with qualified employees. Skilled software developers have been identified by many across our region as a priority for the Tech Valley to attract and retain employers, as well as to grow and retain workforce capacity in these fields. Our partnership with StartFast Code stems from its proven results in the Syracuse region. It offers a promising avenue for serious students and second career opportunities for those looking to update their skills to be more competitive in the job market and to boost their earning potential.
Thank you for considering your own workplace needs and registering as an employer, or circulating this announcement to register existing or potential employees interested in this exciting local opportunity. Advancing Saratoga starts with you!
