Half the Demand for Skilled IT Workers in the U.S. Will Not Be Met (Sep 2000)

August, 2002


Approximately 1.6 million jobs in information technology will be created this year. As we are all well aware, the basic economics of supply and demand indicate that the lack of skilled IT personnel leads us to a problem. Due to the shortage of skilled IT workers, half of the created positions will go unfilled in 2000, according to a study by the Information Technology Association of America (ITAA). The project surveyed more than 700 IT managers representing for-profit companies in the United States.
