Missouri Job Center is hosting Week of Code (12/03-12/07) to attract more candidates to entry-level technology jobs. Their goal is to eliminate common barriers and misconceptions about technology jobs (e.g. How can I find out if I am qualified? How can I learn skills online? How do I get started in a technology career?). Cody is asking local professionals to consider volunteering to speak at their events and/or help with their coding labs.
If you are interested in helping with one of the following roles, please contact Cody Naeger.
