Rentec Direct, an industry leader in property management software solutions, was thrilled to participate in the third annual SOREDI Rogue Tech Tour earlier this month. Rentec Direct hosted the first stop on the tour, where more than 80 college students enjoyed a catered breakfast, a tour of the Rentec Direct headquarters, and a career fair with nearly a dozen local companies in the technology sector. While this was Rentec Direct’s first year hosting a stop on the tour, the company has been a proud sponsor of the event since its inception in 2017.
“The next generation is what is going to continue to drive the technology sector forward in our region. We believe that nurturing them through involvement with events like the Rogue Tech Tour and supporting SOREDI will help to educate and inform students about the careers available to them in Southern Oregon,” said Nathan Miller, President of Rentec Direct. “There are fun and exciting companies here in Southern Oregon offering promising, well-paying jobs. My hope is the connections these students made on the Rogue Tech Tour will help us build Southern Oregon’s young workforce.”
SOREDI has found that one of the top concerns from companies in the Southern Oregon region is the challenge they face recruiting a technology-savvy workforce. When young adults graduate from college in the region, especially in technology-related fields, many do not consider careers in their hometowns to be a viable option. The Rogue Tech Tour was developed to help combat this trend. Now in its third year, the Rogue Tech Tour is hosted in partnership with Rogue Workforce Partnership. This year, students from Oregon Tech, Southern Oregon University, Klamath Community College, and Rogue Community College visited companies in Grants Pass.
