There is the competition to win a search for Amazon’s second headquarters moved to Phase 2. For many people like my hometown of Philadelphia, it brings exciting verification and begins a new round of intense throwing. But for others, it’s another kind of kick-and-one that can do the search for some collective soul.
Why is the competitive region of the modern world now that Apple is anti-ruing a new front of potential ru and more companies are sure to follow?
To put it another way, how is Amazon’s hunt revealed under the readiness of most cities for the future to work in the United States?
Based on experience in the technology sector, running a non-profit technology organization, and being a member of the Philadelphia research committee, it all results in a technology-enabled workforce.
People in the technology sector take on the role they play in the American industry and everyday life, but the majority of Americans use technology in five brands (Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft).
Associated with one or as a mythical industry where people in hoodies and bunny costumes live. In fact, almost every aspect of modern life and work is touched by technology.
This means understanding the technology of operating a personal computer or phone, powering a television, programming a DVR, operating a 3D printer as a fashion designer, or painting prescription files in a plastic factory.
The list goes on and on to design and market a website for a family dairy business that requires knowledge, or skill.
Despite all this disruption of routine, there is a stubborn lack of tech-savvy workers to meet open jobs.
The tech industry is expected to have over 1 million jobs by 2020. So how do the cities that didn’t make the second round compete in the next Amazon?
A certain level of technical skill is required for major fabrication and assembly line operations. And since lifestyles and tax cuts alone can’t lure businesses, the real question is how these cities prepare their workforce to find their next employer.
This is true twice during periods of low unemployment as today.
Currently, the unemployment rate in this country is almost zero.This means that your area needs to attract or train skilled workers in other areas.
This requires an incredible change of mind and a degree of coordination between public and private organizations and from the factory floor to executives. Here are some points to keep in mind:
Technology is more than coding and software.
A huge industry, including marketers who need to advertise their messages using the latest tools, designers who use data for visualization, and teams that use drones for logistics and delivery. So start with understanding non-technical engineers as a way to increase reach and impact.
Expanding the employee pipeline requires not only a new understanding of the
components that make up the technology but also those who are qualified to become engineers.
Recruiting people from diverse groups will quickly increase your talent pool. It is also attractive to employers because research has shown that a diverse workforce can improve a company’s competitiveness and be economically successful.
Think beyond work.
Of course, training the next generation of workers is important, but you must also think about the next generations behind them. Develop programs to coordinate public school curricula, initiate after-school training opportunities, and train teachers and educators. Vocational education for technology-enabled jobs is also important.
Surveys also show that people learn best in familiar environments: at home, at work, in the playground.Invest in civil infrastructure such as libraries and community spaces to enable people to access computers, set up clubs, host robot competitions and other technical events.
And if you learn something in the tech world, it’s still moving.
Therefore, it is not possible to do the training only for today. Programs that consistently advance and expand workers’ expertise in on-site training and supplemental training must be implemented.
Certainly, the tide is beginning to change, and the early species of change are already planted in many cities outside the orbit of Silicon Valley, but it is reproduced by names such as Prairie Silicon, Silicon Array or Bayou Silicon.
I want. For many years, I was a sign engineer assigned to the committee and attended a press conference as an enthusiastic citizen of Philadelphia. Now in the second step of Amazon.
