We want to know your thoughts!
Workforce Solutions Capital Area, a proud partner of AUTM, understands some severe shortage occupations in the tech industry. Therefore, they have created a survey linked below that asks specific questions based on challenges companies may face in finding qualified talent in our region. This analysis allows WFS to better understand the labor market exchange to guide investment into local talent pipelines and workforce program funds for training or our region’s highest-growth occupations. See last year's highest growth occupations found here.
By completing and sharing this 5-minute survey, your feedback will help support occupational training in occupations that are projected to have the highest growth and highest wages for job seekers in our region.
If you have any questions or comments about this survey, please contact Jessica Garay, Data and Career Awareness Project Coordinator: email@example.com. The deadline to complete the survey is Friday, September 10th.
