Who’s looking for your IT skills?

IT World Canada's second-annual salary and job satisfaction survey is repeating a familiar refrain. (see the calculator and report at: http://www.itworldcanada.com/salarycalculator/). Similar to what we saw happening out in the Canadian IT marketplace last year, our results this year show that there's heavy competition for seasoned IT pros and a looming serious shortage of talent. On the surface, that would seem to be great news for those looking for, perhaps, greener pastures and not so great for those looking to hire. However last year, when we published a similar sort of conclusion, we heard from a whole lot of readers who suggested that the market for IT talent didn't seem nearly as active as might be suggested. Seems it matters a whole lot what kind of skills you possess. In fact, lots of folks seemed to be looking, but couldn't find gainful employment, let alone a better IT job. It begs the question this year: as a seasoned IT professional do you feel a strong sense of being wanted – by both your current employer and/or perhaps by another business seeking your particular talents? What are they doing to keep you or what are other doing to lure you?When was the last time you applied for a new job and did you make the grade? Is there really a flurry of recruitment of IT talent happening out there? We'd like to hear about it.
