Report Finds Technology Advancements a Major Support to Manufacturing Techniques

Costa Mesa, CA – April 6, 2018 – A recent report released by CompTIA highlighted the growth in the US Workforce based on the rapid evolution of innovative technologies. The report – called Cyberstates™ 2018 – found that “tech employment in the United States expanded by nearly 200,000 jobs in 2017 and that the technology sector is one of the largest components of the nation’s economy.”  The report also found that “Nationally, the number of job postings associated with emerging technologies increased 27 percent year-over-year – further confirmation employers are ramping up hiring in areas such as the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, machine learning, autonomous vehicles, augmented and virtual reality, and more.”
