Business research firm DataFox has released a new study that ranks Nashville fifth among ten cities that it calls “secretly great” for recent tech graduates. The ranking was based on affordability, growth potential, and the availability of mentorship and networking opportunities. “Nashville’s sneaky-great tech scene offers career resources without the frenzy,” says DataFox’s writeup on Music City.
The city continues to strengthen our reputation as a tech hub, which, as the DataFox article points out, works to the advantage of recent IT graduates: “For young grads just starting to build their professional networks, a small tech scene can actually be better. Cities with a collaborative rather than cutthroat mentality provide opportunities to find mentors, grow new skills and build a durable network.”
Nashville is being recognized more & more as a leading destination for technology. As the number of talented individuals grow, the necessity to create a sustainable pipeline of tech talent is needed now more than ever, and we are doing just the with our We Build Tech platform.
Acting as a resource to connect individuals, businesses & educators, We Build Tech is a great place for recent graduates to explore their next steps. With multiple interactive features, including a job board solely for technology positions and videos of Nashvillians working in tech, the platform can steer individuals into a long-term, successful career path.
