Abstract or Summary
NZ Part of (Global) IT Skills Shortage Danger This headline in The NZ Herald on 12th July, heralded the ministerial keynote at the NetHui internet conference delivered by Steven Joyce, Minister of Economic Development. He acknowledged the (apparent) current worldwide shortage of ICT skills and challenged everyone involved in the industry to evangelise ICT jobs/careers to students and families. As an aside, it’s gratifying to note that the Institute of IT Professionals (IITP) is making good progress down this track with the launch of their ICT outreach programme, ICT-Connect. But, is there really a global ICT skills shortage? The overall scene is, at times, quite contrary with several recent contradictory headlines/articles, certainly at first glance.
