Would you hire a public interest technologist/analyst trained by BetaNYC & CUNY?

Would you consider hiring a public interest technologist/analyst trained by BetaNYC & CUNY?

If yes, we need your support! Right now, we’re looking to talk to NYC area employers who want to tell us what they need. We urgently need to find employers who will join us for a workshop and interviews. Early in April, we wrote about our work with CUNY’s public interest technology lab. Now, we want to build on that work and get the City’s support.

About the opportunity — New York City has launched an apprenticeship initiative to upskill 30,000 people by 2030. IF we can identify New York City region employers who collectively hire more than 50 people per year, BetaNYC, along with its CUNY partners, is in a unique position to build a city-funded public-interest technology apprenticeship program.

If you answer yes to the following two questions, WE NEED YOUR HELP.

  • Are you an employer in the New York City region?
  • Are you willing to participate in a planning process to develop a public interest technology apprenticeship program?

IF you hire any of the following positions, please fill out this contact form and we will follow up with a letter of support, OR you can download the letter of support and email Noel. We have an internal deadline of May 17th for letters of support. (The city has extended its deadline)
