PROVIDENCE – The White House has chosen Rhode Island to be a part of President Obama’s TechHire initiative, a multi-sector effort to empower Americans with the skills they need to succeed in today’s economy, according to Gov. Gina M. Raimondo.

Cities and states in the TechHire initiative work with employer partners on ways to recruit and place applicants based on their skills, create more accelerated tech-training opportunities and invest in innovative placement programs to connect trained workers with entrepreneurial opportunities and well-paying jobs, according to a news release from the governor’s office.

“I’m thrilled to see Rhode Island recognized by the White House for our innovative efforts to strengthen workforce development and prepare our workers with the tools they need to succeed in today’s economy and beyond,” Raimondo said in a statement. “Thanks to this recognition, we now are able to bring even more employers together to send a clear signal to the rest of the country that Rhode Island is cultivating talented, skilled workers and sparking a comeback.”
