Carroll County TechHire (CCTechHire) is led by a strategic partnership among Carroll Community College; the Carroll Technology Council; the Mid-Atlantic Gigabit Innovation Collaboratory, Inc; Carroll County’s Department of Economic Development and its partners. CCTechHire is developing a long-term plan for a TechHire Ecosystem driven by accelerated training, job assistance, internship programs and job placement.
On December 1, 2016 Megan Smith, White House CTO, introduced a new wave of TechHire communities. Carroll County joined an esteemed national network of 70 communities spearheading efforts to help overlooked and underrepresented Americans start technology careers.
The Carroll County initiative connects local participants in leading-edge tech training programs to a network of over 520 county employers. TechHire partners will communicate tech job openings, help to improve alignment of curricula with employer needs, and promote hiring and recruiting from non-traditional training programs.
