Building our Tech Community Through Apprenticeship Programs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What are apprenticeships and why does tech need them? Join our panel of technologists for an inspiring discussion about employer-led apprenticeship programs and how they allow companies to take a two-pronged approach to hiring: continuing recruiting highly skilled people while also growing high-potential people into skilled employees.
