Genesis10’s immersive technology training program doubled in size over this past year, and VP of Talent Development Tara Wyborny is a big reason why.
The 36-year-old is no stranger to staffing. She began as an office intern at Adecco when she was 16 and returned the next three summers. During her sophomore year at Indiana University, she deviated from staffing and interned as a trust accountant, but she came to realize that was the wrong path for her and has spent the rest of her career in staffing, eventually joining Genesis10 in 2010.
Wyborny co-created the program Dev10 in 2018 to expand the pool of programming and data-analysis talent in Minnesota. In the four years since, Dev10 has expanded to New York; Milwaukee; Cleveland; Washington, D.C.; Dallas; Chicago; and Austin, Texas. By the end of this year, the number of cities that will host the three-month program will have doubled.
“I’m a Minnesotan by choice, and I live in Minneapolis,” Wyborny says. “When we started Dev10, I looked at this as a way to create talent that would allow Minneapolis and the organizations within Minneapolis to maintain competitive advantage.” Now, she says she sees it as a way to truly impact people’s lives and careers and also to support on a grander scale the endeavors of US corporations.
