<i>The recession is already putting more IT staff on the streets. This will create an illusion that there is no skills shortage. An E-Skills UK report published in January showed that 65% of UK IT jobs are for managers and senior professional roles. Moreover, too few young people are joining the industry. The proportion of IT workers aged 16 to 29 has dropped from 32% to 21% as outsourcing and offshoring have taken their toll. Lars Lindstedt, a Microsoft software economist, said, "The lower runs are being taken out of the careerladder."</i><br>
