M-Power.tech a community-oriented technology training company will host a one of a kind Bridging The Gap Technology Festival in Dallas. The goal of this event is to expose innovation and technology trends to DFW.
The Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex technology job market is booming.The Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex is home to over 10,000 corporate headquarters, making the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex the largest corporate headquarters concentration in the United States. This also has resulted in the growth of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, home to American Airlines, the largest airline in the world, and the rapid population growth of the metropolitan area, the fourth largest in the United States. People in the IT field are among the highest salaries in the DFW area. Although there are many jobs, there aren’t as many local qualified candidates.
Due to the lack of trained IT professionals, companies oftentimes go outside of DFW and sometimes outside of the US just to find qualified talent. Although there are many jobs here, people aren’t necessarily being trained to satisfy the needs of the positions.
The purpose of this event is to help Bridge that Gap! We want to expose DFW to the wonderful opportunities in IT. we want to show the variety of opportunities in the technology industry.
We want to inspire local residents to explore innovation.
Bridging The Gap Event Details:
The City of Dallas has graciously allowed Bridging The Gap to be held on a bridge. I bet you didn’t see that coming! To add onto that, not just any bridge, but the city’s very own Ron Kirk Bridge (Formerly known as the Continental Avenue Bridge). The 1-Day Festival will showcase innovations and careers in Coding, Gaming, Film, Digital Art, Digital Media, Entertainment, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Fashion, Healthcare, Real Estate and more. Bridging The Gap is focused on connecting companies with future employees from the DFW area. Bridging The Gap commences with a career fair, and climaxes with an artistic, wearable technology focused fashion show combining high-fashion models with high-tech innovations. We want Bridging The Gap to be free to the public so that we can maximize exposure to our sponsors. Tickets and Vendor Booth sales are soaring for the December 15th experience. (Right in time for holiday shopping)
This event will allow M-Power to hire 10 teachers and offer FREE online Technology training to DFW Youth!
