URock to Host Forum on Careers in Computing and IT | Oct 24

CIS Professor and StudentThe UMA Rockland Center will host an open forum on “Careers in Computing and IT” on Wednesday, October 24 from 4:00 – 5:30pm. This moderated discussion of employers, faculty, students, and alumni will explore the career and educational opportunities in the mid-coast area in the quickly evolving IT field.

The discussion will be moderated by Jason Judd, Program Director for Project Login, a statewide non-profit that connects Mainers with careers for the future in Computing and Information Technology.

“Maine companies are eagerly seeking computer-smart college grads to solve problems, analyze software, and develop new technologies. With the high wages being offered to people with these skills, it is an excellent time to be starting in this field,” said Judd.

By emphasizing the voices of employers, CIS students and faculty, participants will gain an up-to-date perspective on the IT field and how it’s changing. Discussion will focus on the skills needed for success, and the pathways for getting there.

This forum is sponsored by UMA Rockland, New Ventures Maine and Project Login.
