You don't need a college degree to work for Indiana IT

The Indiana Office of Technology has become the first statewide agency there to join a workforce program that provides more flexibility in hiring and provides tailored on-the-job training for participants. The State Earn And Learn, or SEAL, program, run by the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, gives high-school graduates, college students and current workers a chance to get paid as an employee as they learn new skills. Where previously the state’s technology bureau was limited to hiring applicants who held college degrees or certain technical certifications, it’s now using the SEAL program to target applicants who demonstrate a capacity to learn the skills the state needs most. Through a partnership with Ivy Tech Community College, which has more than 40 campuses and teaches about 200,000 students annually, IOT will offer an initial cohort of eight to 10 participants spots in the program, which will last between 12 and 26 months. Colin Wood has more.
