Mobile Awarded Tech Hire Designation
In 2016, the Chamber’s Gulf Coast Technology Council and Innovation PortAL assisted the University of South Alabama and the City of Mobile with the application to become a TechHire city. The designation was awarded on December 16th, and is another outcome resulting from the Mobile-led manufacturing designation.
The aim is to train and keep software developers in our community. Additional community partners collaborating on the project included Mobile County and Depot/U, a Birmingham-based coding training program.
Mobile’s boot camp is expected to begin in 2017. Following graduation, 15 Gulf Coast Terchnology Council member companies have agreed to interview the graduates for potential employment.
