The Accenture Talent Caravan was inaugurated, which for two weeks, brings digital experiences and presentations, from experts in innovation and technology to more than six thousand students from 15 public and private universities, as well as some high schools.

From the Higher Technological Institute of Valladolid, the head of the Secretariat for Economic Development and Labor (Sefoet), Ernesto Herrera Novelo, said that this is part of the strategy that Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal has worked with Accenture, since 2021, to form human capital in the field.

He added that, in Latin America, there are 700,000 open positions in cybersecurity, better-paid employment opportunities that must be taken advantage of, in addition to the fact that all careers, whether Medicine, Law, Architecture or any other, are linked to information and communication technologies, talking about concepts like the cloud.

“We are users of technology, but we do not create technology and that is the step we have to take, towards innovation and ‘mind-making’, where the processes are knowledge transforming the economy. It is what we have to do, not only in Valladolid and Yucatan but in all of Mexico,” he exhorted.

His counterpart from the Secretariat of Research, Innovation and Higher Education (Siies), Mauricio Cámara Leal, commented that the most competitive salaries are in this sector and the purpose of the activity is to interest more people in it, as new firms arrive in the territory and request these profiles.

“Governor Mauricio Vila has asked us to adapt to this type of company and program; That is why we are committed to creating a career and Specialty in Cybersecurity, and Cybersecurity Laboratories, as well as opening more spaces to increase enrollment in these areas”, he explained.

He also stated that, with “the State English Agenda, we are making efforts so that, from the second and third years of high school, they begin to strengthen English as a second language, so that, when they finish their studies, they have better opportunities.”

The Accenture Talent Caravan is a sample of the actions that this brand and the Executive carry out, to promote the employability of the new generations in these areas and, thus, reduce the talent gap; now, it covers Mérida, Izamal, Maxcanú, Tizimín, Motul, Tekax, and Valladolid.
