Shortage of quality not quantity
I was a software development manager for 15 years. I hired approximately 50 people (3 or 4 per year). I would have liked to hire great, experienced people who would be productive immediately. My high technology company could meet almost any salary requirement. Unfortunately, I never found the prefect software developer. I made do with the candidates that were available (younger, less knowledgeable, did not know our programming language, did not know the domain) and spent 6 months to a year training them. Yes, I filled my empty positions. No, I never found the perfect candidate; except for internal transfers.
