The high-tech unemployed? The opportunity to educate non-technological employees under the shadow of the crown

The policy paper of the Institute shows that Aaron Corona has between 57 thousand and 136 thousand unemployed people without an experience in technology that can handle high-tech training. High-tech executives differ about how to bring them into the actual industry.

In the labor market, the Corona era forfeited the cards. Both management and workers are required to digest fast changes and adjust to them as they pass. How in such an environment do you control and behave yourself?

We will introduce you to the best experts in the new Management and Job’ column, which will be released on Tuesdays and Thursdays, who will recommend ways to cope with the changing world of work, or at least give us some points to think about.

The Crown has left hundreds of thousands of new displaced people behind. A practical alternative is their conversion to high-tech? Researchers from IDC Herzliya’s Aharon Institute for Economic Policy attempted to address the question. Its founders, Secret Niron, Sergei Somkin and Hela Axelard, concluded in a policy paper recently discussed as part of a special roundtable that there are 57,000 to 136 unemployed people who are not technologically powerful and appropriate for high-tech training.

This evaluation is focused on the percentage of registration certificate holders and academic degrees among the Corona unemployed. A Rating Ranking, a weighting of matriculation scores of 5 units in algebra, English and computer science, psychometric scores and PIAAC test scores, was developed by the researchers, which measures labour market abilities such as digital literacy, capacity to think mathematically, expressiveness and more. The observations were grouped into five quintiles.

These quintiles have 305,000 employees, which is four times the number working in high-tech today, according to Hashai, who discussed the study at the meeting, and therefore the inference is that there are high-potential jobs who can be absorbed in this industry even outside the high-tech market.

You don’t need to get a computer science degree.
One of the policy paper’s suggestions is to include resources for the integration of jobs who do not have a degree from one of the STEM occupations (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).

“Some social science graduates are afraid to go into high-tech because of the image that only 8200 graduates and doctorates in computer science go there,” said Shlomo Dovrat, member of the Viola Group and chairman of the board of the Aaron Institute.

The proportion of academics who do not have a STEM degree in high technology, along with those who do not have an academic degree at all, hits 70 percent-85 percent, according to the policy paper presented. There are occupations such as business expansion, distribution and service to customers. High-tech salaries are also elevated in non-technological occupations. One of the surprising evidence raised was that the wages of scholars without a STEM degree rose at higher rates than the salaries of workers with such a degree in the first year of office.
