- A new kind of tech job emphasizes skills, not a college degree
By Steve Lohr - Saturday Jul 1, 2017
When Bridges heard IBM was hiring at an operations center in 2013, he applied and demonstrated those skills.In a struggling Appalachian economy, that is enough to provide him with his own apartment, a car, spending money — and career ambitions.Bridges represents a new but promising category in the labor market: people working in new-collar or middle-skill jobs.As the U.S. struggles with how to match good jobs to the two-thirds of adults who do not have a four-year college degree, his experience shows how skills can be emphasized over traditional hiring filters like college degrees, work history and references.“We desperately need to revive a second route to the middle class for people without four-year college degrees, as manufacturing once was,” said Robert Reich, a labor secretary in the Clinton administration who is now a professor at UC Berkeley.The skills concept is gaining momentum, with nonprofit organizations, schools, state governments and companies, typically in partnerships, beginning to roll out such efforts.The approach just received a strong corporate endorsement from Microsoft, which announced a grant of more than $25 million to help Skillful, a program to foster skills-oriented hiring, training and education.TechHire provides grants and expertise to train workers around the country and link them to jobs by nurturing local networks of job seekers, trainers and companies.Without a degree, Clark said, her horizons seemed confined to low-wage jobs in fast-food restaurants, retail stores or doctors’ offices.TechHire’s role varies, and it often funds training grants, but in this program it solicited applicants and advised and shared best practices with Interapt, a software development and consulting company.IBM has jointly developed curricula with a community college, as well as one-year and two-year courses aligned with the company’s hiring needs.“It makes sense for our business, for the job candidates and for the communities,” said Sam Ladah, IBM’s vice president for talent.
