Is your company involved with IT? The technology sector in Belleville may be one of the most understated in our community with regard to talent and reach around the world. While manufacturing remains the largest contributor to our "exports" they may only employ 15% of our workforce - so where do the rest of the people work? The Hidden Job Market survey (watch for that link coming soon) will help develop what I hope is a profile of our community that demonstrates what a robust and varied job market exists here - but in the meantime, people working in the tech industry have started to come together to talk about their collective needs and the support they require from government, education and the community to sustain their growth. It was great to be in the room for their second meeting last Tuesday and we will continue to feature/promote their events as they happen.
