Now that Y2K mania is winding down, many IT managers may be thinking that the IT staffing crunch should no longer be a problem. After all, large numbers of contractors, consultants, and laid-off programmers are hitting the streets now that the millennium bug has been slain. So there should be plenty of opportunities to add staff at economical prices, right? Of course not! Managers must keep in mind the fact that IT is always advancing, and workers at the cutting edge will remain scarce and expensive. On the other hand, organizations that need COBOL programmers today can shop at the bargain counter.
