Obama administration adds Atlanta to list of “TechHire” communities

Atlanta has joined the list of President Obama’s TechHire communities, cities that focus on ways to improve training, education and and hiring of workers in technology.

TechHire was launched in March 2015 to help push more investment in preparing America’s workforce for jobs such as cyber security and software development in a bid to improve the nation’s economic future. The White House says more than a half million of today’s open jobs are in the technology fields and the average salary is 50 percent higher than that of other private sector jobs.

Joining the list of new TechHire cities with Atlanta are Austin, Miami, Milwaukee and Seattle, as well as the states of Virginia and Hawaii.
