Whenever companies start hiring freely again, job-seekers with specialized skills and education will have plenty of good opportunities. Others will face a choice: Take a job with low pay — or none at all.

Hi,


I disagree with this report. The issue is "highly skilled" typically costs more in wages. My job got contracted out to foreign workers. Less costs of living means less wages need to be paid.


I'm a College Degree'd Computer Professional with 20 years experience and have been in the market since 2001.


Peace, 

Infinite Blessings

This was all over news sites today--more opinions. Sometimes we need to vent our sources.


My son's job went overseas about 5 years ago. He has been a computer programming engineer since 1988, GA TECH. He took a year off to run the house, something he had always wanted to do. His wife is a senior analyst, NC Chapel Hill and was working. When it was time to return to work he found suitable employment quickly; he is also a networker of the first dimension.


My youngest daughter at 40 is now making 1/3rd of what she made two years ago as a financial analyst. She is GA TECH, too. She may loose her Souther Califorina home but at least she is making tracks in her new company : asked for more responsibilty after a year and received a
$10K raise. She's a networker, too.


Tend to agree in part with your analysis. Wish you well in your search for appropriate employment.

There are two factors at work in the future market of good jobs.


One is mentioned in the article:

  


Technology spurred job growth after the 1982 and 1991 recessions. The PC became revolutionary in the early 1980s. Internet use exploded after the Mosaic Web browser was introduced in 1994. Housing eventually lifted employment after the 2001 dot-com bust.


"There's a lack of clarity on what the next big thing is going to be this time," said David Card, an economics professor at the University of California.



The other is that the population is so huge and the planet so finite.  The long term human carrying capacity of the planet is presently exceeded by a large degree.  More jobs and a bigger economy just makes the effect of that condition worse.  The lack of jobs is an ecological negative feedback process which tends to push the human demand and the planet's supply back into balance.   

Nonself-defensive competition against others (fighting against others) is the root of human evil.
Let's try to overcome humanity's drive to reproduce on this finite planet.
Anarchism + perfect understanding and compassion within the citizenry = utopian socialism.

The Government's role in outsourcing Tech Jobs.


(As of even at least 10 years ago, when I worked for Compaq)


There's a little known legislation that has been "key" to pushing this crisis. It states that (paraphrased) "If an employer can't find the proper skilled worker locally, the Government will assist in importing the skilled workers as needed".


So, for example: Compaq would define a job role that required "12 years of JAVA" knowing damn well the JAVA had not been around for 12 years. Then, with Government assistance and lower wages, hire a "Computer Tech" from a 3rd world nation, such as Vietnam or Thailand, India etc. While the applicant may have a degree in his/her home nation, it still didn't fit the theoretical requirements. But, hey, they filled the slot without having to hire locally and for less wages.


My apologies that this sounds like a "tin foil" hat thing, but I used to work there. Compaq (now HP) even gets a "Farm Tax Break" at headquarters here in Texas for they let animals roam an uninhabited part of their property.

Every employer try to recruit skill people, so some professional and job oriented courses are most essential now.
