Apprenticeships are popular, but they don’t always work for jobs that require many skills. That is why Linc Kroeger, the President of Knight Moves, is looking for ways to solve this problem and create economic success for underserved communities.
Linc and Raul are discussing the difficulty of finding skilled tech talent in the US. Linc has seen many people try to include diverse talent in the workforce but without success. This motivated him to find a solution to the problem. He realized that companies were not willing to spend money on apprenticeships and that senior talent was needed to oversee them. He also noted that the competition for offshore talent was strong, with a shortage of tech talent in the US. To address this, he suggested that more should be done to bring people into tech.
