IT recruiting firms, IT managers, and IT consultants are all still discussing a surprising topic: national policy. IT staffing agencies and other IT professionals, even those as influential as Mark Zuckerberg, began a heated conversation about H-1B workers several months ago as the nation considered significantly increasing the number of H-1B visas allowed per year.
The debate over how often IT recruiting companies submit foreign resumes versus American resumes for IT contractors has been a problem for years. IT staffing firms have suggested, with much contesting from American workers, that there simply are too few US candidates for the IT jobs they fill. The new serious moves towards allowing more H-1B’s has simply fanned the flames of a fire that the information technology industry has quietly been burning. The final result of the actual debate may not even interest the rest of the nation outside the IT sector. What might be the most lasting impact may simply be the entrance of loud, passionate voices from technical recruiters in the midst of political conversation.
