Computerworld: Demand for IT Workers Still Exceeds Supply

Amazingly, Computerworld published an article today headlined Demand still exceeds supply for IT workers. We find this surprising because it contradicts the information one can gather at any bar in Lower Manhattan by being a fly-on-the-wall.

This article should not be ignored just because its title and first idea are hard to believe. There is a lot of interesting (all be it anecdotal) information there. Among other things:

  • "the glut of ex-dot-com workers flooding the job market has led to a mismatch of skills between employers and potential employees...."
  • "Java programmers are not in top demand now.... Because companies are concerned with integrating legacy systems with e-business systems, {people} with cross-application integration skills {are in demand}."
