The tech industry provides some of the highest salaries on the job market, but surveys and expert opinions indicate that talent is in short supply. Companies report that their capabilities are lacking in areas like information technology, cybersecurity and mobile technology.
Mark Brenner is chief of staff at Apollo Education Group, parent company of Rockit Bootcamp, and recently penned an op-ed for The Arizona Republic acknowledging President Obama's recent commitment to providing training opportunities for inexperienced tech professionals.
"We're all seeking the same thing: Training skilled professionals, filling jobs and creating partnerships with local companies that are in need of people and skills to support and grow their business," wrote Brenner. "From where we stand, presidential validation adds to the exciting, sustained tech boom we are witnessing in Phoenix."
Educational investments are an important component of preparing for the future, but they don't solve the immediate problem hiring professionals face in the tech industry: a shortage of qualified applicants. With the help of a staffing firm, businesses can make their most impressive bid for the limited supply of superior candidates.
Available talent depends on geographic location, although many tech professionals have voiced a willingness to relocate if the price and role are right. Fine-tuning offers, vetting applicants and casting a wide net can be challenging for tech firms of any size to do on their own. That's why businesses should explore all of their staffing options before making a decision.
