The Skills Gap

American Manufacturing companies have discovered that prospective employees do not have the necessary skill set required to perform job functions for current available employment positions. Skilled technicians are approaching retirement age leaving over 600,000 jobs unfilled.

Rosedale Tech students graduate with the skills necessary to fill these positions and help bridge the skills gap.

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math)

According to ASTRA the overall U.S. Science & Technology Workforce exceeded 7.4 million workers in 2012 and it will continue to grow significantly through 2018, to an estimated 8,654,000 STEM workers. 314,000 of these projected jobs will be in Pennsylvania and 274,000 in Ohio.

Rosedale Tech students receive hands on career training allowing them to transition into a STEM position.

The Energy Field

Due to the expansion of the natural gas/Marcellus Shale industry in the Western Pennsylvania area, employers are hiring Rosedale Tech grads at a rapid pace. From 2009 to 2014 employment in the Pennsylvania Marcellus Shale industry increased 8.2%, creating almost 16,000 additional jobs, while the state average of all industries increased only 3%.

Rosedale Tech graduates from various programs are equipped with the knowledge and skill set to obtain employment in the Marcells Shale industry.
