Recruiting Tech Talent Getting Tough Again

March 17, 2005

We’ve been hearing anecdotal evidence that jobs are getting harder to fill in tech centers like the Bay Area and Seattle. Jobless data released today indicates that San Jose had the biggest dip in annual unemployment rates among the 50 biggest US communities – a 1.7% drop. Of course, not everyone in San Jose holds down high-tech jobs, but if only 6.2% of the region is unemployed down from 7.9% a year ago, and San Francisco’s rate is down to 5.3%, there would seem to be a negligible number of tech-sector people in the region who cannot find work. And yet in a poll released by the tech job board DICE, 43% of IT worker respondents said a lack of job security is the greatest contributor to job stress. It would seem that perceptions have not yet caught up with reality.

    Edmonton dominated the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night and the 4-0 margin in Game 6 makes it hard to imagine the Oilers not hoisting hockey’s Holy Grail above their heads in less than 48 hours. And it would not come as any shock to see defenseman Chris Pronger, who had another 31-minute night, take the honors for the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoff MVP.
