TechHire Pittsburgh is a public-private collaborative aimed at bridging the digital skills divide in the region. It is part of a national campaign to expand local tech sectors by building tech talent pipelines in communities across the country. With the region’s demand for tech talent expected to grow 2.6 times faster than Pittsburgh’s market overall, opportunities are expected to be plentiful for skilled job seekers.

Specifically, Partner 4 Work strives to create opportunities for unemployed and underemployed individuals to gain the skills needed to enter this field, with an emphasis on creating opportunities for those with nontraditional backgrounds, no college education, and/or other barriers to employment.

Partner 4 Work is seeking experienced training providers with the curriculum and employer connections to
successfully prepare these job seekers for entry-level IT and tech jobs in energy, manufacturing,
health care, logistics, and other sectors.
