We encourage you to make a donation to AUTMHQ!
Hola and Hello!
As the holiday season approaches, we realize how important it is to help others and share our blessings. Today is #givingtuesday, and it's the perfect time to make a donation that will impact the lives of others. Through a $150 donation, AUTMHQ is able to pay the stipend for one week of training for one AUTMite. For $500, an AUTMite can have an occupational mentor and a life coach for a year; this will truly change their story. Additionally, the technology required for an AUTMite's training is covered by $750. You can read more about what your donation can fulfill here.
On a different note, our 12 Days of AUTM by AUTMHQ will kick off on December 6th. Check out the complete event calendar here and follow us on social media to stay up to date and celebrate the holidays with us. One more thing, please allow me to remind you to sign and share our Texas Technology for All Change.org petition. We are a few signatures away from hitting our goal, so please support us and help us spread the word.
Lastly, I recently read that not only it's a responsibility to help others, but it also makes us happier and healthier. Our goal at AUTMHQ is to change the lives of individuals and families who want to achieve the fundamental dream of a better, self-sustaining existence. Please make your donation as soon as possible. We guarantee it will make you very happy.

Samsung semiconductor factory to bring thousands of jobs to Central Texas
By: Jarell Baker
CENTRAL TEXAS — Driving to Austin for work at The University of Texas is not a problem for Killeen Resident Tasha Robert.
“Austin is one of the highest costs of living markets around in the Central Texas area and Belton, Killeen and Harker Heights are very reasonable,” said Killeen Resident Tasha Robert. Even though the capital city is an hour away, she said it’s simple.
“I’ve been doing it for 17 years, once you get on the highway you get used to it. It’s too easy," said Robert.

Amid The Great Resignation, here’s what the hiring process looks like at 4 tech companies
Even before the pandemic, the average tech worker was looking for a job at a faster rate than those in most other industries.
A 2016 Dice report showed that employees at some high-growth companies like Uber or Airbnb averaged about 1.5 years of tenure, while some longstanding companies like Pixar kept employees for more than eight years. On average, the report found, tech workers are looking for a new job just about every three years.
The Great Resignation, an ongoing shakeup of the job market following nearly two years of pandemic work and lifestyle shifts, has meant candidates are looking for companies with great pay, work-life balance and interesting projects. Learning management system TalentLMS, recently released a survey showing more than 70% of tech workers said they’ll be looking for a new job in the next 12 months. ________________________ ↪ Click here to discover the great-paid jobs in tech!

Jobs Replaced By Technology Will Be Surpassed By The 'Jobs Of Tomorrow'
By Elik Jaeger Forbes Councils Member
Much has been said about how technology is re-coding how (and even where) we work. And no doubt, advancements in artificial intelligence (AI), automation and cloud-based platforms are transforming operations within offices, facilities and residential buildings of every stripe. Still, while there’s value in spotlighting the tech behind today’s workplace revolution, it’s also important to recognize the new roles and opportunities they are creating for their human coworkers. Rest assured, I believe the human workforce is not going anywhere soon. The “rise of the machines” will not render skilled talent extinct, and self-learning machines won’t erase the need for human customer service. In fact, according to a 2020 report by the World Economic Forum, the number of jobs "destroyed" by technology will be surpassed by the number of "jobs of tomorrow." ________________________ ↪ AUTMHQ is here to help and guide you as you initiate your career in technology.

38% of women in tech plan on leaving their job within the next 2 years—here’s why
A recent report from New View Strategies, a business management company, shows that gender inequality in the tech industry remains a prevalent issue, with one in three women in the tech field saying they experience gender bias at their workplace.
After surveying 1,000 women working in the tech industry, 38% of participants say men are assumed to be more capable than women at their workplace. Thirty-eight percent of respondents also said they plan to leave their tech jobs altogether within the next two years. And nearly half of women surveyed (46%) say their organizations do not actively promote gender equality in hiring and culture. ________________________ ↪ AUTMHQ is a tireless advocate for digital equity, diversity, and inclusion in technology.
