EXPLORE IT IN THE NRV
ACCESS TO TECH TALENT
The strength of higher education in the NRV generates a talented workforce and supportive ecosystem. Virginia Tech (VT), Radford University (RU), and New River Community College (NRCC) produce a steady supply of IT talent with degrees in Computer & Information Sciences and Computer Engineering.
Companies in the region also have success recruiting alumni from these universities back to the area to fill mid- and senior-level positions. Entry-level and highly educated professionals remain in the NRV because of the region’s vast and beautiful outdoor amenities, cultural events, and little perks (like incredibly low traffic).
