August 11, 2014

IT Jungle's Alex Woodie reported on the latest developments in the IBM i job market in his article, "IBM i Job Market: Not All Doom and Gloom" The article was a follow-up to their July article on a similar topic and features HelpSystems VP of Technical Services, Tom Huntington.

"It is tough finding people that know IBM i and Java," Huntington tells IT Jungle.

"Longtime RPG developers will not find a job in this market if they aren't using Java, .NET or some tool like Look, PHP, LANSA, or SEQUEL to access this data," said Huntington. "If an individual has IBM i and .NET, Ruby on Rails, or PHP skills, those guys and ladies are [finding opportunities] available. Some of the people who find themselves in trouble are the management types. It's not always easy finding the next IT director position, no matter what. But when they have to fall back on their skillset, if it's RPG, they're in a world of hurt."
