We Looked at Occupations in Manufacturing and IT to Determine Where the Skills Gaps Exist
In July 2017, ConxusNEO coordinated with RITE and MAGNET skills gap research project to measure the gap between the supply of graduates from Northeast Ohio colleges and universities, and the number of in-demand, entry-level IT occupations in which recent college graduates qualified in IT and Manufacturing. By utilizing Burning Glass Labor Insight provided by Shanahan Resources,Inc. and insight gained from companies, ConxusNEO provided strategic guidance to the TechHire and Manufacturing networks to help them take collective action to develop strategies that will mobilize the community to address the demand for tech talent in Northeast Ohio. Funding support for this project was also provided by Stark State College, Lorain County Community College, and Cuyahoga County Community College.
