We Looked at Occupations in Manufacturing and IT to Determine Where the Skills Gaps Exist
In July 2017, ConxusNEO and RITE Board managed the IT 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. By utilizing Burning Glass Labor Insight provided by Shanahan Resources,Inc. and insight gained from companies, ConxusNEO and RITE Board are providing strategic guidance to the tech talent ecosystem to 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 MAGNET, Stark State College, Lorain County Community College, and Cuyahoga County Community College.
