DO YOU HAVE A WORKFORCE GAP?

As an Idaho employer, you are probably aware that our state has a serious workforce gap. Thousands of Idaho jobs go unfilled each year because Idaho lacks the skilled workforce it needs to fill these jobs. Additionally, many young Idahoans are unaware of the career opportunities that are out there.

Each year, PTECH students tour Idaho employers from across the state like Western States CAT, X-Craft, MetaGeek, Quest Aircraft, Kootenai Health and others to learn more about available careers, various company cultures, and skill required to work at these companies.
