    This is yet another sign of the disposable employee, and now HR people are supporting it.

    There is no skills shortage! There is a shortage of management who invest in their employees and provide the necessary support should company requirements change.

    The laser pinpointing of skills in recruiting is indicative of very weak management and a weaker HR group not willing to highlight the damage that it causes.

    All of this is great for me as I have been hiring excellent people who cannot get the time of day from HR recruiters, yet are premier employees.

    When the last HR employee is offshored, please turn off the lights back in the USA.
