The same day the state announced no change in our unemployment rate, the Venture Development Center at the University of Massachusetts Boston tweeted:
Dear Boston, you are creating way too many tech jobs. Please slow down while your universities catch up preparing workers. Thanks.
The "Dear tech workers, please go to California," was, of course, too long to fit.
High-tech marketer John Cass found the statement disconcerting:
Would zero jobs open mean everything is okay? I think that's rather an indication of the strength of the MA economy.
The center replied:
Mass last year created 3,550 new inno economy jobs. But are they filled? 3,772 tech jobs open according to Dice. 3,772 tech jobs open in Boston Metro Area, +10% over last year. Shocking failure to prepare workers for innovation economy jobs. Mismatch of jobs and qualifications undermines innovation economy.
