The information technology industry in the US has had a dearth of talent for a long time. The story of too many IT jobs and not enough IT consultants to fill them is a familiar one to most companies, IT recruiters, and IT staffing firms in the US. Some companies are working on new solutions to deal with this problem and to ensure more IT contractors in the future.
Though it’s a long-term investment, some companies are working with educational institutions to sponsor programs that will help graduate young professionals with resumes ready for the IT world. There are still plenty of sticky issues, like making sure these programs are not only good for the companies, but good for the students. However, these programs are a good start to dealing with a big problem. As time goes on, technical recruiters and IT recruiting companies will only have more jobs to fill. If schools become one more ally in the work of expanding our IT workforce, all the better!
