It's pretty tough to find good help these days, isn't it? While that may sound like an age-old reality for managers since, well, forever, it's a growing concern among IT companies, according to a recent survey from Sologig.com. The majority of hiring managers at these businesses say they have open positions for which they simply can't find qualified candidates. Among the issues they encounter with prospects are unrealistic pay expectations, a lack of required education/training and an inability to "get" new and shifting technology demands. "There's no silver bullet for recruiting tough-to-fill technology jobs," said Eric Presley, chief technology officer for CareerBuilder. "Employers have to constantly evaluate their talent needs through workforce planning and ensure their compensation is competitive enough to attract top talent. IT workers, meanwhile, must always be polishing their existing competencies and acquiring new ones to stay relevant." A total of 240 employers from IT industry companies took part in the research for Sologig.com, which is CareerBuilder's job site for computer and IT professionals.
