Georgia employers spoke and the state listened.
In response to a critical need for skilled workers in several key industries, Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal launched the High Demand Career Initiative in 2014. Initially, the state worked with key employers in strategic industries around the state to identify current and future workforce needs.
Now that these needs have been identified, the Universities and Technical College Systems of Georgia, including Georgia Tech’s Savannah Campus, have developed curricula to address workforce shortages and provide training in high-demand and well-paid careers.
