Did you know that there are nearly 11,000 people employed in
Information Technology (IT) careers in northeast Wisconsin?
And, in the New North region, we will outpace growth in new IT jobs
in Wisconsin. Why? It is the strength of our advanced
manufacturing, insurance, financial services, transportation,
health care and IT firms that plan double digit growth over
the next five years.
Information Technology is an integral process in every business
and the talent needs are as varied as the industries seeking
qualified candidates to grow their digital platform. In May, 2015
NEW ERA in collaboration with New North, area economic development
organizations, Chambers of Commerce, the Bay Area Workforce
Development Board and the Fox Valley Workforce Development Board
conducted a market analysis to better understand the IT talent
demand and supply.
NEW ERA colleges and universities are currently working on 2+2
degree programs, similar to the Bachelor of Science in Engineering
Technology degrees, in that students can begin at any NEW ERA
college or university and complete their Bachelor's degree in four
years with internship experiences.
