Over the last decade, the demand for IT services has been growing at an unprecedented rate. This has led to a shortage of skilled IT professionals in many industries, including healthcare, retail, and banking. These companies usually hire outside IT services companies to meet their short-term needs. This shortage has also led to higher costs for companies and, as a result, has negatively impacted the health of the U.S. economy.
Technology is changing the way companies do business, and service-based companies need to adjust their approaches to keep up. One area where this is particularly apparent is in the field of IT staffing. Historically, IT staffing companies have been the primary source of talent for service-based companies, providing them with the specialized skills they need to grow their businesses. However, as technology becomes more accessible, and service-based companies expand into traditional industries, they’re turning to technology companies to meet their needs.
One of the most pressing IT service staffing challenges we have today is the lack of available candidates with the right skill sets. While there is no shortage of resumes, many of the candidates who have the skills and experience to fill a job are not available to fill a job. This is because the job market is extremely competitive, with many candidates chasing a limited number of roles and positions. This has resulted in candidates being forced to choose between jobs that do not match their skills and career ambitions or to stay in jobs that do not match their skills and ambitions.
