There is no shortage of tech workers.

Some more proof of this is that recruiters nowadays often won’t even consider you if you haven’t used the exact product version number of the tech that they want to hire for.

For instance, say that you are an expert on version 5. Version 5.1 comes out, which is 99.9% identical. Recruiters will only consider you if you’ve used (or are certified) on version 5.1, not 5.0, despite the differences taking less than 30 seconds to learn.

I first started looking into and getting hired for tech jobs in the late 90s, early 2000s, and it was so much easier to get a job then – even after the web bust.

There is absolutely no shortage of tech workers anywhere in the US.
