A Work colleague pointed this article out to me and She brings up some interesting points.
An article was published yesterday in one of Austin’s local papers about Austin’s tech talent shortage. I was job hunting just a couple months ago and get a lot of calls from recruiters and hear about friends’ companies who are hiring and I think it’s pretty damned accurate. And by accurate I mean that it points out how fucking ridiculous some of these companies are being. Flying out to SF to try and steal engineers away but not being willing to match their salaries? Seriously?
