Just a quick question: Where are all the interface and software
designers in Silicon Valley? Has everyone just packed up and left or
what? I see more job listings, postings and calls for resumes and yet
there seem to be even fewer people to fill the jobs than ever before.
I used to have trouble hiring at Adobe back in the late 1990s mostly
due to the high experience and training requirements needed to work
on software at that level, but that was before there was an influx of
people and talent into software related products, especially from the
web. And yet, now it seems that there's an even bigger gap in the
designer to available job ratio than every before. Everyone I know is
having trouble filling hiring requirements.
Is it that the job requirements needed to get hired are too high? Not
enough trained designers? Or is it something only happening in
Silicon Valley? Browse the job listings and postings everywhere from
companies in Silicon Valley and it seems we have a distinct lack of
designers ready to fill all the openings.
