Engaging Students to Fill the Tech Talent Gap


Join NVTC’s Filling the Tech Talent Gap Community of Interest for a virtual meeting on the value of keeping students in the National Capital Region after graduation and strategies to make that happen.

The growing School of Business at George Mason University, part of the largest public university in the Commonwealth, graduates over 1,100 students per year in concentrations that prepare students for successful business and tech careers.

What can local businesses do to retain highly skilled students after graduation? Two senior leaders from the School of Business will share details on the programs put in place to engage and retain students during school and post-graduation. Learn what it takes to tap into this local NextGen talent for internships, apprenticeships, consulting projects, and ultimately a career and future with your company.

Why it matters. Retaining students in the region post-graduation goes a long way toward helping close the current tech workforce gap. Understanding the value of engaging local learners equals opportunities for students, organizations, and the region as a whole.
