A year ago, I would have dismissed the idea of a shortage of qualified workers for the booming IT industry.
But now, as the tech sector has experienced a massive job growth and is now valued at more than $200 billion, a shortage is emerging.
And the number of jobs is soaring faster than ever before, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The BLS defines a shortage as “a shortage of available labor or goods” in an industry or industry sector.
For instance, if a company is hiring too few workers for a job, the BLS would say the shortage exists, but the company isn’t using enough labor.
The problem is compounded when you consider that employers are increasingly relying on contractors for their jobs.
A shortage can come from a number of sources, including:The BIS defines a “job vacancy” as a job that’s open but not filled, meaning there’s no available workers for it.
Companies have often moved on to fill vacant jobs, as they’ve become a way to fill empty positions.
For example, the University of Chicago Business School recently reported that more than 5,000 jobs were being eliminated due to a lack of qualified applicants for IT roles.
This trend could be slowing down as the IT industry continues to expand.
The BLS is forecasting that the labor shortage will continue to grow and will reach 4 million by 2025.
As a result, the number and pace of vacancies in the IT field will likely continue to climb, and the shortage will become more pronounced.
The Bureau of Economic Analysis predicts that a shortage will be in the tens of millions of workers by 2020.
As the industry continues on its upward trajectory, there’s a good chance the BIS will find it harder and harder to keep up with the demand.
In the meantime, companies like Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Microsoft are taking steps to find more qualified workers.
For them, it’s about finding the right people and taking them on as employees.
“Our company’s goal is to have an entire team of people, not just a few people,” Facebook’s vice president of global talent, John Novella, said.
“We’re not a hiring company.
We’re a hiring platform.”
Google’s hiring platform is called Talent, and its hiring efforts have included hiring more than 700 people for roles at its data center, and more than 1,000 people at its software engineering company.
Facebook’s hiring efforts, too, are focused on hiring employees.
In fact, its hiring team is so focused on filling its workforce that the company’s VP of Talent, Kristina Schulze, recently said that she had no time to spend with the company.
Facebook’s hiring and talent efforts aren’t unique.
Google is hiring more and more employees at its search engine and other products, including its video site, its music streaming service, and Facebook’s online gaming service.
And Microsoft has hired nearly 4,000 new employees at the end of last year, including more than 400 at its cloud computing, data center and data center operations.
Microsoft has also been recruiting new talent at its retail operations, such as its tech support and technology sales teams, as well as at its corporate headquarters.
The hiring efforts are part of a growing trend, which is making it harder for companies to fill their workforce.
A shortage can be a sign that people are retiring, or that companies are laying off employees.
Companies also are taking a more aggressive approach to recruiting and retaining employees.
For the most part, companies are using software engineering and other skills to fill positions, but they are not using those skills to replace workers.
The result is that companies need to be more selective about who they are hiring, and companies are increasingly turning to contractors.
In a recent study by the Boston Consulting Group, 70 percent of companies reported hiring contractors, and 20 percent of those contractors are looking for work in a technology industry.
