A Sturgeon Bay IT professional says there are not enough employment opportunities in Door County for other IT professionals. Nathan Drager, Founder and President of Quantum PC in Sturgeon Bay, says he's received many applications from people with IT backgrounds that are not currently working in the field. Drager added that Door County is not a good area for freelance work as much of the county doesn’t have high-speed internet available and IT freelancers end up living in Green Bay or Appleton. He wishes Door County would focus more on technology jobs than it does now.
Drager says technology classes at NWTC are more filled than ever before and he has a larger pool to choose from when looking for interns for Quantum PC.
