High Tech Firms Look To The Net For Technical Talent

DALLAS -- Bounties are offered, wanted advertisements are posted on
billboards and headhunters lurk on the Internet. Qualified computer
workers are hunted down wherever they might be.

With the fast pace of growth in high-tech fields, many companies are
struggling to find technical talent to fill their needs.

"Software and computers are a significant part of everyone's business.
The demand has increased because of that," said Gary Slagel, mayor of
Richardson, Texas, a Dallas suburb with more than 500 technology
companies located in an area nicknamed the Telecom Corridor.

The quest for top technical performers means companies find themselves
in bidding wars for workers. Salaries are edging up to reflect the
competition.
