Every year, Pennsylvania’s nearly 250 public and private higher education institutions award almost 194,000 credentials (certifications, associate and bachelor’s degrees), ensuring PA’s workforce pipeline is filled with employees who are critical thinkers, problem-solvers, and innovators.
“Doing business in Pennsylvania has helped Net Driven succeed by giving us access to students in 11 colleges in a 90-mile radius of where we do business. A majority of our workforce is under 30 years old, and we have plans to recruit 50 more people in the next 12 months. And it is vital that we have access to young people with the appropriate degrees for us to be able to grow our business.” –Patrick Sandone, Founder and President, Net Driven.
