Where will tech companies in the Baltimore region find their new hires?
Inside Maryland’s universities, according to Millennial Media cofounder Paul Palmieri.
Palmieri, who recently stepped down as CEO of Canton-based Millennial Media to take a position with venture capital firm New Enterprise Associates, told the Baltimore Business Journal that tech firms in the area need to do more to reach out to area colleges:
“It’s really that recognition of where your talent pools are going to come from that’s very helpful in recruiting,” Palmieri said. “Get to know what their curriculum is, what they’re teaching students and how applicable that is.”
Palmieri said that Millennial Media’s new hires typically come from Morgan State University, Loyola University Maryland and University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
