TechHire Maine is connecting Maine's workforce to careers in information technology and computing.

The TechHire Initiative is a multi-sector effort to empower Americans with the skills they need, through universities and community colleges as well as non-traditional paths to technology training.

In August of 2015, Educate Maine’s Project>Login program received a TechHire Community designation from the White House on behalf of the program’s extensive network of Maine employers, educators, and workforce colleagues. Project>Login is now one of 71 TechHire Communities across the U.S.

TechHire Maine's focus is to recruit, assess, train, and place young adults and underserved individuals into Maine's IT industry. Participants take part in training and work experiences tailored to their career goals using a customized track approach. All of the tracks are driven by employer demand and provide opportunities to obtain the specific competencies or experiences participants need to meet their employment objectives.
