Demand For Linux Skills Rising This Year
This year is shaping up as a really good one for Linux, at least on the jobs front. According to a new report (PDF) from The Linux Foundation and Dice, nearly all surveyed hiring managers want to recruit Linux professionals within the next six months, with 44 percent of them indicating they’re more likely to hire a candidate with Linux certification over one who does not. Forty-two percent of hiring managers say that experience in OpenStack and CloudStack will have a major impact on their hiring decisions, while 23 percent report security is a sought-after area of expertise and 19 percent are looking for Linux-skilled people with Software-Defined Networking skills. Ninety-seven percent of hiring managers report they will bring on Linux talent relative to other skills areas in the next six months.

One of my colleagues is trying to find Senior and Intermediate Linux SysAdmins for government contract work. This is long-term work with an immediate start, and it requires a Secret clearance.
This is an ASAP opportunity that should be filled by tomorrow.
If you know anybody who may be suitable, let me know.
