Employers in Greater Philadelphia have created 25,000 net new tech jobs since the early 2000s – equivalent to 25% of total net employment growth in the region during that span. Tech is positioned to be a major engine of sustained job growth in our economy, but firms report difficulty finding candidates with the needed skills and credentials to fill many positions.
Join the Economy League during Philly Tech Week on May 2 as we release an in-depth analysis of the region’s IT workforce and present a strategic framework for expanding and deepening the tech talent pool in Greater Philadelphia.
