Of all the hopelessly square phrases used to describe the Internet, "the information superhighway" is actually the most accurate. Like an infrastructure built out of roads, the Internet creates more opportunities the faster it is. By accelerating the pace at which data goes through broadband cables, we create more tech jobs.

TechHire is a bold multi-sector initiative and call to action to empower Americans with the skills they need, through universities and community colleges but also nontraditional approaches like “coding boot camps,” and high-quality online courses that can rapidly train workers for a well-paying job, often in just a few months.

Large organizations – those with 500 or more employees – especially recommend IT certifications (63 percent).
