  1. Todd a lot of what is in column A can also be found in people from column B- IT “skills” rarely come in neat baskets as any IT recruiter can tell you.

    In fact, the titles that recruiters work on can easily cluster around the specifics of the clients at hand- one groups “systems programmer” is another’s “software engineer” and so on…..

  2. I see what you’re saying Martin — they’re just generalities, with a lot of exceptions. One tends to be a safer job than the other, but by no means in all cases. It’s similar to when people say in one breath that manufacturing is moving overseas and in another breath that not enough people are going into manufacturing because they think it’s all moving overseas. It’s similar to the thing that I keep reading in business publications that “health care is recession-proof” — not always true.

  3. As the immortal Yogi said “nobody goes there anymore because it’s too crowded” !

    But very seriously: great IT minds come with all kinds of titles; thinking of them in tight silos can blinker recruiters and hiring authorities from real talent that could meet the need(s) at hand plus some.
