Paradox: Talent shortage vs Unemployment

  • Unemployment 2017: EU 7,4% equals to 18M persons, Youth unemployment as high as 16%, Finland 8,7%, Spain +17%
  • Need for talent: for the past nine years, software engineers have been at the top of the hardest to fill jobs in the United States. I don’t think anyone is surprised to learn that 2018 will be no different.
  • Then again: 56,000 layoffs and counting: India’s IT bloodbath this year may just be the start (Quartz India Dec 2017)
