Our International Data Center Day partners at Uptime Institute, with support from Google, Meta, and Microsoft, have launched the Data Center Career Pathfinder, a free online tool that uniquely lists hundreds of career possibilities in the fast-growing global digital infrastructure industry.

The Career Pathfinder is not a job site, but an exploratory resource that lists more than 230 different types of job roles that span the design, build and operation of data centers, ranging from sustainability strategy to construction. Each role includes minimum education requirements and key competencies, such as communication, problem solving or critical thinking, for example.
Uptime Institute created the Career Pathfinder to provide concrete information for students, job seekers, job changers, workforce returners and anyone else considering their future career journey. Governments, education institutions and industry groups can also use the Career Pathfinder to support efforts to expand curricula, training, and other programs specific to the data center industry.
"The data center industry is full of opportunity across a wide range of expertise and skills. We hope the Career Pathfinder will help us reach and attract new diverse talent into this growing industry," said Darcy Nothnagle, Director of Community and Economic Development at Meta.
