The NVTC Job Board provides members the opportunity to post jobs and search resumes specific to the technology industry and our region. This unique, focused career center qualifies applicants before they are listed, taking away the need to sift through thousands of emails in order to find candidates with the right level of expertise and background for your company.
NVTC supports the Commonwealth STEM Industry Internship Program (CSIIP), a free, online tool, funded by the Commonwealth of Virginia and supported by the Virginia Governor's Office, which companies can utilize to find the interns of their choice from any accredited Virginia college or university.
NVTC advocates in Richmond for policies to boost Virginia's technology workforce through a robust science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education pipeline and by increasing the number of STEM certifications and degrees awarded statewide.
