Broadway, everyone makes his own valuation. If one has the experience and skills desired in the market, the paycheck looks like a job switching bonus. For others it may just be a relief factor and the beginning of tougher times to search for new roles.

When the skills become scarce, spending three months training employees to get acquainted with the technology is better than not having anyone to work with at all. If the programmer is ready to learn the data scientist skills, why not?

kq4ym, true. It gets really tough if the shortage is so severe that even the external labour market does not have the required skilled labour. Just to elaborate, it would be like training a software programmer to become a network security analyst so one can imagine that the person would take minimum 3 months to get acquainted with how things work.

kicheko, agreed. People these days must learn to be flexible and be open and welcoming to new learning opportunities. If one is willing to get trained then he can adapt to the skills required in existing vacancies unless they are too specialized in nature.

When there's a lack of already trained personnel, there's no choice but to hire and train. At some point when the supply exceeds the demand, companies will be able to pick and choose and the training aspect will naturally go down. But cycles go up and go down. So, there's always going to be a boom and bust scenario in finding the right talent.
