Gov. Asa Hutchinson announced today the creation of a website for high-tech jobs in Arkansas. Find it here.

The state says it’s the first state-based effort of its kind. It’s a part of the governor’s emphasis on computer education in schools. A release said there are both jobs and qualified workers here in many fields. From the release:


There is no cost for companies or job seekers to participate. A “Sign Up” button on the home page allows companies to create accounts and start posting open positions immediately. Nearly 50 companies are already using the site, including AT&T, Tyson, Windstream, J.B. Hunt, iDatafy, Tenneco, inuvo, Walmart and the state of Arkansas. ARCodeKids, a new Little Rock-based non-profit organization, and the Information Network of Arkansas (INA) created and developed the website at no expense to the state.
