TechHire is a nationwide movement that aims to level the playing field for tech jobs. In collaboration with the City of San Diego, the San Diego Workforce Partnership is leading TechHire San Diego to match participants from the following information and communication technologies (ICT) fields with training and employment:

  • Computer programming (e.g., coding, software development)
  • Network and support (e.g., IT systems, network administration, cyber security)
  • Multimedia and design (e.g., web design, graphic design, digital marketing)
  • Analytics (e.g., data analysis, business intelligence, database administration)
  • All other ICT fields (e.g. robotics)


TechHire San Diego is looking for employers interested in hosting an intern at no cost, mentoring a job seeker or bringing a job shadow to your workplace. SDWP will pay interns for up to 150 hours of work; any hours worked in excess of 150 hours will be covered by the employer. Mentorships and job shadows will be contingent on the schedule and availability of the business or industry expert.
