Developing a comprehensive understanding of IT-related knowledge and skill has great importance to the IS education and research community. This study attempts to enrich the authors' understanding of the needed IT knowledge and skills with special interests in business professions other than IT. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with thirty-two recruiters from companies in the Midwest region. The findings indicate that IT knowledge and skills have been significantly considered during the recruiting process, even if the target position has no direct IT requirements.
