Emerging Technology Ventures Inc. was proud to welcome their first full time employee graduate of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) recently, Jordan Gonzalez. Mr. Gonzalez has worked with ETV for over a year now thanks to the partnership with the WIOA Region IX office. Through this program, youths are able to intern with an organization while in high school to receive knowledge and workforce development training to prepare them to move to successful careers after their graduation. Jordan worked closely with the Software Engineering team at ETV and gained valuable insight into software development, coding principals and tactics, and applying that knowledge to the realms of robotics and unmanned/autonomous systems. ETV staff are thrilled to have been able to work with Jordan for over a year and drive his passion and desire, to the point that he will be attending New Mexico State University - Alamogordo in the fall for software design and development.
