I wonder if the supposed lack of US CS graduates is the knee-jerk reaction
of students being dissuaded from entering into those programs, during the
the dot-bomb era.
Personally, I wonder if any of the 2200+ jobs reported by
ComputerJobs.com<http://ComputerJobs.com>are duplicates, as many
competing recruiting services will advertise the
same employment opportunity.
All I can say from my personal experience is that 2200 jobs doesn't mean
much to me, as I doubt there are 2200 available IT jobs in my local market
(Atlanta). At least, it sure hasn't felt like it everytime I had to look for
one. The job I have now is the most stable I'd had since 1998 (in terms of
longevity). I consider myself a middle-of-the-road employee -- not poor in
quality but not a genius, either. I was on the bench between jobs for
anywhere from six months to well over a year. I can't tell if the market
conditions are any better now or not.
