More than 450 tech jobs headed to Atlanta thanks to women-owned company

 

As conversations about inclusion, diversity and prejudice circle not only the tech industry but the country, a woman-owned tech company has announced plans to bring offshore operations to the Atlanta metro.

Milletech Systems Inc., a software solutions and services company, states the move will create a total of 465 jobs. The company will recruit 100 Georgia college students each year for full-time positions in the cloud technologies space. They will work at the company’s new software development center. According to Gov. Brian Kemp’s office, Milletech Systems will scout students at local Historically Black Colleges and Universities, the University System of Georgia (which comprises of 26 public institutions across the state) and Atlanta’s workforce development agency.

Those new jobs include positions in cloud software solutions, application management and support and analytical services.

“Milletech’s Software Development Center will create jobs in emerging cloud technologies and software development in the city of Atlanta, instead of offshoring those opportunities to other countries,” Nasir Mujawar, CEO of Milletech Systems Inc., said in a statement. “This facility is a first-of-its-kind software development center, which will provide career pathways to Georgia’s local talent pool while boosting the state economy.”

Milletech Systems already operates an office in Alpharetta. The new offshore operations will relocate to 1 Balitmore Place NW in Atlanta near Emory University Hospital. The building is home to several corporate innovation centers and resides in a Georgia State Opportunity Zone — an area where the city creates opportunities and investments to revitalize low-income communities with the help of tax breaks for the companies that relocate there.

“In Atlanta, Milletech will have access to top technology talent and become part of a welcoming business community committed to innovation and success,” President and CEO of Invest Atlanta Eloisa Klementich said in a statement. “I would like to thank Milletech for not only their investment in the city, but also for their commitment to training and diversity to help local students grow their careers. The new jobs created through this expansion in a range of fields and salary levels will help more Atlantans to prosper.”

Milletech offers end-to-end business solutions to clients across North America in emerging technologies and provides software design and development. The company was founded in 2000.

Job Openings In GA: There Are Plenty Of Employment Listings

GEORGIA — With record unemployment levels reaching new highs every week, but a good number of employers are searching for workers in Georgia.

The number of jobless Georgians has already blown past the worst year of the Great Recession, the state’s labor force has lost 5 million workers and the recent data has shown increases in unemployment filings measured in the thousands of percent compared to last year.

On Thursday, the latest unemployment data didn’t shake Georgia from its perch among the states with the most jobless benefits applications, but the update wasn’t entirely without positives: For the week ending May 2, Georgia Department of Labor reported 228,352 new jobless claims, down 38,000 from the previous week — the first decrease in jobless claims since the start of the coronavirus outbreak.

The employment site Indeed.com has listed scores of jobs that have opened even as the virus continues and many businesses remain closed.

You can search here for job openings in our area.

You’ll note that some of the postings went up more than 30 days ago. But also notice that many of the jobs have been advertised within the past few days and weeks.

If you’re a small business owner in the Atlanta area in search of employees and you’re not on Indeed, you can post your job openings in the Patch classified section. Here are instructions.

How To Apply For Unemployment
The Georgia Department of Labor is temporarily suspending all in-person requirements for services. Residents are asked to conduct GDOL-related business online to protect everyone from potential exposure to COVID-19. Find instructions on the department’s website.

Filing an Unemployment Claim Online
You will need your:
• Social Security Number
• Georgia Driver’s License, if applicable
• Bank’s routing number and your account number (if you want to receive your benefit payments via direct deposit)
• Work history information for the last 18 months

Follow these steps:
1. Select the link labeled Apply for Unemployment Benefits on the GDOL Home page.
2. Answer the questions completely.
3. Download and read the Claimant Handbook. Information in this handbook provides detailed instructions regarding the unemployment insurance program and “Next Steps” to follow after submitting your claim.
4. Record your Confirmation Number. A confirmation email will be sent to the email address provided when completing the claim application. (If you do not receive a confirmation number, the application was not successfully completed. It remains on the system for 24 hours. Log in again and make sure you select FINISH to receive a confirmation number.)

After you file, your next steps are to:
1. Request your weekly benefit payment every week, starting the first Sunday after filing your claim by selecting Claim Weekly UI Benefits Payments on the GDOL Home page or calling the Interactive Voice Response System at 1.866.598.4164
2. Monitor your voicemail and email closely for messages from the GDOL.
3. Respond immediately to all requests for additional information.
4. GDOL will contact you if it is necessary for you to complete an Applicant Status Affidavit (DOL-1054A). You will not have to go to a career center.
a. Download and complete the affidavit in its entirety.
b. Mail the affidavit and an enlarged, legible copy of your valid government-issued picture identification to the career center you selected on your claim. Select Find a Career Center or use the address indicated in the email request.

If you have claimed a week of benefits and have not received your written determination of eligibility, Claims Examiner’s Determination within 21 days of the filed date, you may call UI Customer Service immediately at 404.232.3001 (in Metro Atlanta) or 1.877.709.8185 (in all other areas).

Workforce development initiatives underway in Clayton County

Aerotroplis Atlanta Alliance, a public-private partnership founded in 2014, works to create a qualified workforce for companies in and around Clayton County. Also, out front in workforce development are the county’s schools and universities, including Clayton State and the Technical College System of Georgia. In addition, Congressman David Scott (GA-13) has sponsored a job fair for the past 16 years. Although it was cancelled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, Scott is now working to provide housing and jobs relief for the county as part of an upcoming federal stimulus package.

The Aerotropolis Alliance operates through three major channels: economic development, education and workforce development. All play some role in finding and developing talent, said Shannon James, Aerotropolis president and CEO, adding that the organization focuses on the southside of Atlanta.

“What we have is a centralized business district surrounding a major airport,” James explained. “It gives us a regional view of how we can support each other in economic and workforce development.”

During this period of social distancing and closures due to the pandemic, the organization is partnering with companies and communities to assist with providing food, masks and other needs, he added.

Corporate members of the Aerotropolis Atlanta Alliance include Georgia Power, Porsche Cars North America, Delta Air Lines Inc., and Chick-fil-A. The job of filling the personnel needs of these organizations is immense; according to the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC), the airport under normal conditions has more than 64,000 employees with an annual economic impact of $34 billion. Clayton County has a workforce of just over 135,000, according to Data USA.

Morcease Beasley, superintendent of the Clayton County school system, chairs the Alliance’s education division, which partners with other groups “to ensure Clayton County and South Fulton students take advantage of the opportunities available within the Aerotropolis,” he said. “We create programs to produce the type of employees businesses would like to hire.”

One of the most successful efforts by Beasley’s group was its first career fair last fall, which attracted some 400 upper-level high school students. The education division of the Alliance also has developed career pathways curricula in such areas as technology, education, agriculture and other top county industries. The pathway programs include training in business careers as well as for public service professions such as firefighters and law enforcement officers, Beasley said. Each pathway offers three courses, which currently are online due to school closures around the coronavirus pandemic.

Students in grades 9 through 12 also can take advantage of dual degree programs with the Technical School System, which allows them the opportunity to complete an Associate Degree, Technical Diploma or two Technical certificate programs while in high school. Georgia Power, in conjunction with the school system, also offers experiential learning programs.

A major boost to workforce development in Clayton County and throughout the nation would be the passage of H.R. 6368 that U.S. Congressman David Scott, who represents Clayton County, hopes will become part of the next federal stimulus package. The Congressman’s proposal would provide $75 billion to the states based on need with a minimum amount granted to each state. The money would go to people “who have lost their jobs, whose mortgages are being threatened and who need help paying their utilities,” said Scott.

The Congressman has long supported workforce development as evidenced by the job fairs he has hosted in his district, which for 16 years have matched employers with ready-to-work talent. According to Chandra Harris, district director for Congressman Scott, the most recent fair last March attracted 142 companies seeking to fill approximately 5,600 positions. Annually the fair averages 10,000 to 16,000 attendees to the Georgia International Convention Center (GICC) and includes employers such as fire and police departments, banks, retail stores and corporations including Delta Air Lines Inc., UPS, FedEx, Coca-Cola, Home Depot and Georgia Power. The Federal SBA (Small Business Administration) has also been a player in the job fair, as have the Georgia Association of Broadcasters (GAB) and the Veteran’s Administration (VA), Harris added.

Companies and educators need to start looking “around the corner” when it comes to workforce development in the future, Scott said. The next job fair, whenever it can take place, will be informational in nature, he added, with experts conveying the many changes that will shape the job market of the future.


Clayton County workforce development initiatives at a glance 

  • Aerotropolis Alliance brings public/private sectors together for workforce development and held its first job fair for high school students last fall.
  • Clayton County Public Schools offer career pathways and dual enrollment programs for high school students.
  • Georgia Power offers experiential learning for students.
  • U.S. Congressman David Scott, who represents Clayton County, sponsors an annual employment fair that attracts between 10,000 and 16,000 job seekers and more than 500 companies.
