Are there skilled industry professionals looking for work

August 13, 2007

Semper sent out the below to a large group of our database. The responses we received were quite interesting and we felt important to share. We decided to post it to our blog and invite people to share their responses in this public format.

Original message:

We keep hearing from our local offices that skilled, reliable print industry workers are hard to find.

We understand many of you are managers with hiring experience and some of you are skilled professionals happily working but your advice is really needed.

I am told we have had to decline or been slow in filling orders due to the lack of available candidates. Have you seen this recent scarcity of skilled workers? Are you or have you had similar trouble hiring? Are there many open spots that your company can not fill?

From the standpoint of those looking for work, what has changed in recent years, why are you coming into the industry or leaving it. What has your recent experience been looking for work in the print industry?

PLEASE feel free to post responses on this blog.
