NATIONAL TECHIES DAY

National Techies Day on October 3rd encourages students to consider a career in technology.  With so many opportunities in the growing technology field, students seeking a career in technology will find promising choices anywhere they look. 

In 2012, Engine Advocacy commissioned a report by the Bay Area Council Economic Institute in California. According to the report, for every high-tech job, four more jobs are created. That’s a lot of economic boost created by one industry.

By 2030, the technology sector will continue to grow while other job sectors may decline. While the jobs future changes, one thing remains steady – technology. Healthcare technologies will continue growing by nearly 48 percent. While research ramps up, surgeons and medicine take advanced technologies to a whole new level. With it, they need software specialists trained to maintain the equipment and train the medical personnel.

Beyond medical technology, manufacturing advances technology every day. When considering the future of the automotive world alone, specialized technology keeps up the demand for qualified professionals.

Software development grows every day. However, if we examine technology’s impact on manufacturing, security, and global environmental solutions, we can’t ignore our future needs. The students in the classroom will be the skilled, trained technology-savvy employees of tomorrow. We need them to be.

Take note that National Techies Day falls during National Cyber Security Awareness Month. Techies ensure our devices are protected and secured. They develop the software and help us maintain our computers, smart devices, and more. If you don’t protect your computers – find a techie today! https://www.google.com/amp/s/happydays365.org/national-techies-day/national-techies-day-october/amp/

NATIONAL TECHIES DAY HISTORY

With a growing need for employees with advanced technical skills in America, Techies.com and CNT Networks launched National Techies Day. In 1999, nearly 60% of new jobs were expected to require advanced technical skills that Americans didn’t have. The tech companies and the day encourage kids to embrace computer science and even the monikers sometimes attached to contemporary technology.
