“Today’s tech industry is thriving, with CompTIA projecting there will be nearly 250,000 net new tech jobs created in 2021, in addition to the 3.9 million tech job postings opened in 2020.
It reminds me of the tech market 30 years ago, when I was graduating college. Back then, most of the hiring focus was on programming skills and intellectual capability. Heck, the company I worked for was recruiting anyone with a college degree and training them on COBOL and JCL. It was all about getting folks who had the aptitude to produce code.”
