Oracle professionals in high demand for 2008

This Networkworld article notes that IT professionals are becoming high-demand commodities, largely as a result of the retirement of seasoned professionals:

"There is a shrinking talent pool of qualified IT professionals and some managers are talking about the graying of their current staff. "

This trend is also a result of the failure of offshoring, as corporations realize that they need on-site professionals to manage their mission-critical and sensitive databases. 

See this funny parody of offshoring!

Also note this diagram that shows country sizes based on GDP, showing the USA as leading in gross domestic product:

For retaining the younger IT professionals, the main focus is on training these new Oracle professionals and the survey respondents indicate that spending in training is a #1 priority:

"Employers are willing to train staff as well. About one-third said staff training in new technologies was their No. 1 priority, while 68% ranked training in their top three priorities for 2008.

Training is just one way IT managers are looking to keep staff, Harrington says."

As a leading independent provider of Oracle training services, we are seeing  a huge amount of interest in Oracle training, but only for training by seasoned professionals with many years of hands-on experience. 

We also see a trend for young Oracle professionals, especially those who distinguish themselves by graduating from competitive universities where six-figure starting salaries are becoming commonplace in 2007.  Today's young Oracle professionals are getting executive packages that are normally reserved for high level management:

"many younger workers expect to get an office immediately or be paid at a rate higher than entry level."
""The executives we talked to are looking at bonuses and incentives packages, coop plans with colleges and universities, and working hard to get the right candidate in place and keep them,"

The BC Oracle training cruises have also proved popular for rewarding proficient Oracle professionals, a way to combine world-class Oracle training with a great vacation.
