Professionals Bring Fresh Talent to Region’s Skilled Workforce
alented young professionals like Busra Demirci are finding an appealing livework-play lifestyle in Palm Beach County. “Working here is one of the most rewarding experiences due to the growing Silicon Beach trend,” said Demirci, a user experience designer at Modernizing Medicine in Boca Raton. “The tech community not only provides a wide array of opportunities, but also a tight-knit group of professionals – all just a short stroll away from our beautiful beaches and Atlantic shores.” Her colleague Marlow Charite, a mobile software engineer and Palm Beach County native, agrees completely. “The diversity
here is amazing,” he said. “It’s easy to come into contact with people from all walks of life. Now, I’m living my dream of writing software for a living right here where I consider home.” In information technology, financial services, healthcare and other professional occupations, the Millennial generation is entering Palm Beach County’s workforce with excitement and enthusiasm. “They are the future,” said John Duffy, CEO, 3Cinteractive, a mobile marketing company in Boca Raton. “As a team, we spend a great deal of time helping them be successful. I believe that creating competencies is one of the keys to a happy and engaged workforce. While compensation, job security and the physical environment are important, the ability to learn, to perform quality work and to be recognized for success are even more important for workers of all ages.”
