GDH consulting made some good discussion points for he supposed shortage for qualified applicants for IT positions. The main problem seems to be the lack of communication between the HR staff and the hiring manager. This seems to be a recurring problem for people in many industries, not just IT. Or is it really just age discrimination?
1.) Maybe having better communication between hiring managers and the HR department.
2.) Improving HR to seek qualified applicants.
3.) Train staff that is already there.
4.) Train new staff that already have some of the qualifications.
