IT Jobs Moving Mid-State?

In a document entitled the "2007 Renaissance Report" released Wednesday June 27 by the Technology Council of Central Pennsylvania, evidence was provided that Technology is creating jobs and new opportunities for young people in central Pennsylvania. The report states that private corporations and government have combined to invest more than $400 million in ongoing efforts to build up the region's technology and telecommunications infrastructure. And, eight major employers, among them Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and GlaxoSmithKline in Marietta, have created 1,341 high-tech jobs in the last two years, yet the midstate still has a shortage of at least 300 to 500 information technology professionals.
