What’s lacking in IT these days? Women!

I read a recent article on Fierce CIO that somewhat stunned me. It indicated that there is a frightening shortage of women in IT today and it does not seem to be getting better. That, along with the news that new jobs being created in the economy are in large part being created for men screams of a need to put some focus on this problem.

If you’re one of many employers or in our case staffing firms trying to hire high quality developers of any kind, you’ve now been introduced to the “skills shortage”. These high demand skills like .Net and Java are getting wooed by highly recognizable companies, high flying start-ups, leaders in cutting edge technology.
