Job market fighting for engineers in Asia Pacific region


The Asia-Pacific region, or APAC, which has the largest and most successful high-tech companies is a hotbed of recruiting for technical professionals–especially engineers. Intel announced in February that it planned to hire 1000 software engineers this year, many of whom will be in Asia. Microsoft likewise has more than 100 openings for mostly software engineers in China and almost that many slots for engineers in India. Apparently in response to an increasingly competitive environment in recruiting and retaining top technical talent (Google gave out 10 percent pay raises this year), Microsoft says that beginning in September it will offer raises in salary and stock awards to attract and retain staff.
