MA unemployment down to 8.4% – software engineers in high demand!

MA unemployment down to 8.4% http://ow.ly/2ZAva software engineers in demand in Mass – @scottdunlop – Java/C#/LAMP/startups/VC market hot!

The same trends as have been around much of the year — the “hot spot” for experience seems to be 1-10 years — very limited demand for very senior/principal/architect candidates, and fresh grads (unless Ivy). That said, I continue to see very positive trends for end of the year, and continuing into 2011.

If companies would be just a bit more “open minded”  about their perceptions of candidates, I could see a LOT more hiring going on, with the demand side of the job market RED HOT (Lots of jobs, but clients still aiming for “perfection”).
