IT’s Future: Is it in China?

The information technology industry in the US is booming, with plenty of opportunity for IT recruiters, IT staffing companies, and IT consultants.  However, future US IT jobs may involve another country: China. As one of the largest IT companies in the US, LinkedIn, has recently shown, it’s possible to work with China and all its differences in laws and regulations.

Some companies, like Facebook and Twitter, have had some serious problems doing business in China.  Their refusal to follow Chinese protocol has resulted in either roadblocks that make it hard for their IT consultants to do their work, or out and out blockages.  Companies like LinkedIn have had to make some hard choices about how to deal with China in business—while there are certainly plenty of issues that would make it easy to dismiss as new ground for growth, China’s financial power and potential is too hard to ignore.  It may be that IT recruiters and IT staffing firms find a need for Chinese speakers sooner than they ever anticipated they would.
