Intel is set to receive $8.5 billion from the Department of Commerce to enhance semiconductor manufacturing and create 10,000 new jobs. The company is investing in partnerships with post-secondary education programs to strengthen the pipeline of available talent to fill these jobs. Intel is also exploring various ways to expand the qualified workforce and the talent available to come into these jobs. The company is working on developing workforces to support such investments, as experts estimate that more than 1 million additional skilled workers will be needed to work in the semiconductor industry by 2030. Intel is also aiming to restore education and workforce infrastructure for an industry that saw it fall by the wayside in recent decades.
