InformationWeek Spotlights the IT Talent Shortage Debate

When it comes to hiring top IT talent, there's a lot of frustration from the companies, the hiring agencies, and those looking for work. Is one to blame, or is the entire process broken?

NEW YORK, Nov. 4, 2014 — (PRNewswire) —  It's one of the oldest problems in business: Where is the talent?

UBM Tech/InformationWeek

In the case of IT, the talent shortage debate has been raging for some time, with employers claiming they can't find the IT pros they need for certain jobs, and thousands of job seekers saying they are ready to work, but companies aren't hiring.

So, where is the problem: Is it the talent not having the right skills, the companies not willing to train people to bring them into the fold, or the hiring managers complicating the process and blocking the right IT pros from the door?

This week, InformationWeek takes an in-depth look at the IT hiring conundrum and what it means to the development of the digital technologies that enterprises, large and small, need to compete in today's competitive landscape.

To answer these questions, InformationWeek.com Editor-in-Chief Laurianne McLaughlin has written a two-part series looking at how businesses, hiring managers, and IT workers view the current job market and talent search.

Every week, InformationWeek tells the story of how technology is changing our lives and the way we do business. This week, InformationWeek spotlights the IT hiring debate and how that affects the way companies can profit from the digital age. As always, the editors and writers welcome your questions and comments on the InformationWeek website. Please join our conversation today.
