What We Do

The Mayor’s Office in Tallahassee is working with TalTech Alliance, a local-nonprofit committed to bringing together business, government, and education, and local tech companies, such as Mainline Information Systems (one of the largest tech employers in North Florida) to foster connections between candidates and tech employers with innovative training. Tallahassee TechHire participants can expect to receive training from Tallahassee Community College’s adult vocational programs to meet tech employer demands. Additionally, multiple partners, such as the Alliance of Entrepreneur Resource Organizations are liaising with the Tallahassee’s TechHire initiative to use talent portal platforms that will help connect graduates to employment opportunities.
