Denver Recruiters are specialists in the practice of attracting qualified individuals on behalf of their clients or organizations. Recruiters may be generalists or have a particular knowledge of the many industries and sectors that make up the North American Industry Classification System, known as NAICS.
Denver’s Information Technology Jobs Unfilled Due to Lack of Skilled and Qualified IT Workers
Today one of the hottest sectors is information technology, and the jobs are plentiful. However, the uncomfortable truth is that our tech companies just can’t find the workers that they need, and our colleges and universities are not producing these types of technical professionals.
Although our national and Colorado unemployment rates as of October 2012 are 7.9 percent and 8.0 percent respectively, and people are pounding the pavement looking for work, you just don’t expect to read about worker shortages in the aftermath of the Great Recession of 2008. Unfortunately, the shortage of qualified IT workers that are desperately needed by our U.S. companies competing in a global market place does exist. Therefore, Denver tech or IT companies have added to their payroll a Technical Recruiter to focus exclusively in identifying and attracting this type of talent.
IT Jobs Expected to Grow Significantly 2010-2020
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Occupational Outlook Handbook, computer and information technology jobs are expected to grow significantly between 2010 and 2020, and therefore our Denver companies will continue to compete for this talent. Applicants with a bachelor’s degree or better yet, a master’s degree, and a strong technical background should have the best job opportunities in the years to come because:
- an increased demand for computer software is not abating.
- American business will continue to invest in newer, faster technology and mobile networks.
- rapid growth in data collection by businesses will increase the need for greater, more sophisticated database security measures.
- the consumer, as well as business, now has a greater reliance on computer systems and technology in their daily lives.
- both the consumer and American business have an insatiable technology appetite.

Global competition will drive the need for hiring a specialized, experienced recruiter, known as a Technical Recruiter to attract this highly sought after IT talent. Attracting top IT talent and the best Technical Recruiters with strong sales, negotiation, and business skills will be inherent to the success of these organizations.
