HUNTINGTON - CentralApp, a West Virginia-based company, is offering job-seekers throughout southern West Virginia the chance to learn high-tech skills - and get paid while doing it.
CentralApp says it's looking for candidates for apprenticeships that will teach participants to develop applications within Salesforce, a digital global business platform.
The eight-month career training program will allow workers to develop computer coding skills and earn certifications needed for employment in the rapidly expanding tech industry, according to Patrick Farrell, co-founder of CentralApp.
"We believe Appalachia is fertile ground for growing the digital development industry in the United States," Farrell said. "We have talented people who are ready to work - and the old obstacles of location and geography don't apply for digital jobs."
