Charleston to participate in national tech workforce initiative

One of the technology sector’s primary trade groups is embarking on an effort to boost professionals early in their careers, and Charleston will have a hand in it.

CompTIA says it’s launching a series of initiatives to help tech workers find jobs, get training and meet mentors. Nancy Hammervik, its executive vice president for industry relations, says the group is focused on a “confidence gap” in tech more than a skills gap.
