IT Staffing The Buzzwordby Uday Patel Seo Professional & Content Writer India
IT is the buzzword, ever since computerization took place and software advanced the rush for career in this field is on.
IT or information technology is an integration of many technologies all related to computers. Yes the main output is from computers but this may have changed a little bit since we perceive computers in conventional sense as desk top, lap top and tablet. But to this have been added the ubiquitous mobile and many machines and equipments that work silently behind the scene using programs or software’s.
The programs are set up to perform particular functions or deliver results based on analysis. IT is definitely amalgamation of programs given shape using numerous languages that have evolved in the contemporary era. Information technology is also an amalgamation of technologies on the hardware side like managing networking servers, advanced computers and simple operations as well.
Hence IT is a comprehensive field and not a constricted niche as people perceive. Its disciplines are mind boggling and ever evolving. This has created a separate paradigm how we do things and how things are operated. Flying and aircraft or driving a car is much different than what it was before thanks to integration of programming or software and even automation driven by artificial intelligence.
The revolution has lead to an industry which is in trillions of dollars and widespread all over the globe. IT is often a specialized offering of a conglomerate but it is also a part of any industry since computers and programs are involved.
This phenomenon has given rise to a niche staffing where agencies search for people with right qualifications and experience. IT staffing is difficult business since there is a high turnover. In this niche qualifications and experience weigh on all other attributes a recruiter would look into.
Though the staffing exercise remains same as a practice, the qualification aspect weighs heavily in IT recruitment. The programming languages are ever changing and facing development. Hence new languages are constantly being introduced making many programmers redundant. Those who do not upgrade are left behind and are of no use to the recruiters and the companies employing the IT staff. This is applicable on the hardware side as well.
A popular IT staffing firm would offer all necessary solutions to the companies. But there is a catch the current skills of the candidates count a lot. Has he or she upgraded to latest language or technology?
