Governor Asa Hutchinson Launches New Website for Available Technology Jobs
Tuesday, August 15, 2017 · 4:32 pm
ArTechJobs.com is a one-stop shop for companies to post tech jobs for prospective workers.
LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas (August 15, 2017) – Governor Asa Hutchinson today announced the launch of a new website that gives Arkansas job seekers a specific location to view open jobs throughout the state in the burgeoning technology sector. The website, www.ArTechJobs.com is the latest component of the governor’s Computer Coding Initiative to increase the number of Arkansans in high-tech fields.
“The number of high-school students participating in computer science courses has increased almost 400 percent since we began our initiative,” said Hutchinson. “Now it is time to also focus on real job opportunities for our growing skilled workforce. It is my belief that once kids see what kinds of jobs are out there, we will attract even more students to STEM careers. It’s hard to set a goal on something you don’t know exists.”
The mission of ArTechJobs is to connect employers and tech workers in Arkansas in an effort to fill a growing number of technical jobs in a wide variety of industries including IT, web development and design, database administration, software development, computer network architecture, information security, healthcare, and more.
“We have the talent in Arkansas to fill these high-tech jobs now, and thanks to Governor Hutchinson’s coding initiative, we are leading the nation in educating more workers for future jobs,” said Arkansas Economic Development Commission Mike Preston. “This website is the first step in pairing the right employees with the right companies.”
There is no cost for companies or job seekers to participate. A “Sign Up” button on the home page allows companies to create accounts and start posting open positions immediately. Nearly 50 companies are already using the site, including AT&T, Tyson, Windstream, J.B. Hunt, iDatafy, Tenneco, inuvo, Walmart, and the State of Arkansas.
ARCodeKids, a new Little Rock-based non-profit organization, and the Information Network of Arkansas (INA) created and developed the website at no expense to the state.
Job seekers can create personal profiles and upload their resumes. They can narrow their job search by full time, freelance, and/or intern positions.
