How Severe Is The IT Talent Crisis?

Are you fighting the IT talent crisis?  The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that by 2020, there will be 1.4 million computer specialist job openings. Yet U.S. universities are only on track to produce enough qualified graduates to fill 30% of these jobs. The gap between open jobs in IT and the number of qualified candidates is widening. In other words: we face a talent crisis.

This talent crisis is wide-spread; no industry is immune, and it’s only going to get worse as technology becomes more pervasive.

If you are feeling the pain of the talent crisis: you are not alone. This is a key pain point for many companies, and Oakwood is here to help.
