  1. Ecommerce skills, (web design), Programmimg (Java, MCSE)
    Web Design with the surge of ecommerce (HTML, Dreamweaver etc), Programming for the new Windows 2000 rather than the older NT4 version – the change over will ocurr in July. A fantastic way of learning about this skills shortage is to get your hands on this week’s Freelance Informer (26/5) there is a great section which comes with this weeks – called Ecommerce all about the lacking skills in the UK.Make sure they send you this supplement though.

    Call 01622778222 – for a copy today!! It is very useful, with some great stats.

  2. Sources of information about IT skill shortages
    You are absolutely right to identify that when managers discuss IT skill shortages they are often talking at cross purposes with no common terminology and without objective evidence. You should check out the IT NTO for their skills framework(but the material is in pdf and difficult to download) You can also call me to get a copy of the FOCUS research report on this issue. Unfortunately it is in hard copy only. 020 7896 8426

  3. Shortage in all ICT areas
    The reported IT skills shortage has been around in various forms for eons. As each new technology moves out of early adopter phase of the product life cycle it gets clobbered because we in the IT world either cant keep up or are still working on the previous “best thing since sliced bread”. However recently the shortage has begun to get critical because it is affecting all areas of ICT from end users through systems support to systems development the major deficit is in all things Internet. The IT newspaper Computing follows the trends very closely and I have the last 2 years worth of them if there is anything particular you are after.
