With increasing focus on how emerging technologies like AI will transform industries, IBM remains committed to helping Americans get the skills they need to work alongside technology in ways that help their everyday lives. It is because of this experience that IBM understands the demand and the broad range of skills needed. IBM offers a range of education, skills, and career readiness programs to students and job seekers at no cost – all grounded in skills and career tracks relevant to the era of AI. IBM can’t do this alone, and we want to help other companies, institutions, and governments leverage our lessons and experiences to create real pathways to good technology jobs. We begin with recruitment and hiring, and close with our policy recommendations for Congress and the White House.
