An entry-level job at a retail giant has opened up for the first time since it was shut down in 2016.
The job posted on the National Association of Manufacturers website on Monday said “an entry-line computer engineer position” has been created at Wal-Mart Stores Inc. to fill a gap in the field.
The position was created through a new program that provides employers with “high-quality training opportunities” to fill positions in the IT, technology and manufacturing industry.
The new job posted by the National Assn.
of Computer and Information Technologists was for a software engineer position and did not offer any specific training.
The previous program for entry-to-entry computer engineers was shuttered last year amid allegations that IT was rife with fraud and mismanagement.
The National Association for Software and Services Employees, or NASSE, announced last year that it was launching a new “virtual” training program for computer engineers.NASSE has offered training for more than 7 million computer engineers since 2010, including in areas including cybersecurity, business processes, information systems, and data science.
