ORLANDO - In just the first six months of 2014, Florida has created nearly as many tech jobs as the state did in all of last year.
Florida has already added 4,100 tech jobs compared to 4,500 jobs created for all of 2013.
That ranks Florida 2nd nationally for tech job creation, according to a new report from Dice, a career site for technology and engineering professionals.
Tech hiring and availability of professionals has become a campaign issue during the gubernatorial election. The focus for Florida, like many states, is on growing tech workforce and starting young with techCAMPs as one initiative.
