When it comes to recruiting high-caliber tech personnel, US firms are struggling. Figures show that at the end of 2020, around 1.4 million computer science-related vacancies remained unfilled. The US produces around 65,000 computer science graduates each year, which means it's unlikely the gap between supply and demand is likely to lessen any time soon. As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, companies are increasingly comfortable with recruiting remote workers to fill their vacancies, which is where the pool of highly skilled and qualified South American tech specialists can help to fill the current computer science personnel gap. Here we take a look at some of the reasons why Latin America has such a rich supply of IT developers and tech personnel that may be successfully recruited into the US labor force.
