E.U. will have a gap of 900 thousand IT pros in 2015

Unemployed in Europe Stymied by Lack of Technology Skills

This is the headline of The New York Times’ article about lack of IT professionals in Europe.

In Dublin, for example, about half of information technology jobs were being filled with foreign workers for a lack of skilled applicants. The European Union lacks qualified IT workers to fill jobs in the growing ITC sector.

Many Jobs In Europe Go Begging For Skills

“In all countries, there is an expectation that many of the new jobs created will be in the knowledge-intensive economy,” said Glenda Quintini, a senior labor economist at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. “But we are seeing a worrisome skills mismatch that means a large number of unemployed people are not well prepared for the pool of jobs opening up.”

Please see the original article Unemployed in Europe Stymied by Lack of Technology Skills for more details, or use software development outsourcing services.
Or see our previous post “outsourcing vs H-1B visas in 2014” that there will not be enough qualified IT jobs candidates to fill the vacancies in the U.S.
