Dealer.com [SIV63] 

1/18/08: Ping pong, lattes, plants, OH MY!

Dealer.com is a VT company that recently expanded into plush new digs and is hiring a young, technically savvy workforce.   

There has been lots of talk lately about young people leaving Vermont in search of better paid, high tech jobs - does Dealer.com offer a ray of hope?

Walking into their massive colorful new space, it is hard to believe that you are in VT: 65,000 square feet of wide open workspace, an organic cafe on site to fuel its workers, a gym with HDTVs, a blue and lavender tennis court, a ping pong table, basketball court, bean bag chairs and an abundance of plants. 

The primarily young workforce is expanding and many of them are Vermonters, some of whom got their feet in the door through ITAR, Vermont IT Apprenticeship Readiness Program.

Makes you wonder if VT is slowly catching up to the technological boom as our high speed internet connection gets stronger.  Perhaps VT is still in the game after all.

Music by Pretty & Nice off their Pink & Blue album, "Busy Bees."

Our new video feature, The Campus Question asks St Mike's students what it would take to keep them in VT after graduation.
