    i got to agree with the comments. Especially the one about how its HR doing the search, and not the IT manager. HR doesnt know jack **** when it comes to IT, and they really do use the software for buzzwords...so if you dont have alot of those key buzzwords, then you're resume is not going thru. thats why i prefer to email a specific person when i send my resume to jobs.

    Off-shoring is all about cost, not about finding competent people to replace every possible domestic IT job. In the world of IT, India does a couple of things well, such as writing software and speaking English on a telephone. It's these types of jobs that are off-shored to save money, not sysdamin/netadmin/InfoSec jobs. When other countries find a niche in IT that their populace does well then they'll get a piece of the American IT pie too--all in the name of saving American businesses money and nothing more.
