Smoothstack is taking a new approach to providing apprenticeship programs focused on the 40% of people that are under employed in the technology industry. These focus heavily on Socio-Economic Challenged areas and minorities who may not have the opportunities or connections to enter technology jobs. They provide a bridge by matching the talent to the companies in need and provide training for jobseekers targeted to specific jobs. Smoothstack is leading the way in the new focus area of skills based job hiring and training set forth under the recent presidential executive orders.
