Immediately, we note that most IT companies will not go completely to a remote site. There will always be at least key offices. In a personal interaction, engineering and creative people, which include programmers, engineers and architects, always work better than sitting alone at home. It is convenient to write code alone, but when creating architectural solutions, teamwork has always proved its advantages.
Hiring and relocation will return to their usual volumes as quarantine measures are lifted. The shortage of highly qualified personnel will remain, this is especially noticeable in European countries. The level of technical education in Russia and the CIS countries is quite high, and this ensures the demand for our specialists in the world. This trend will remain for a long time.
Now countries are only opening their borders. The European Protocol implies different categories of countries in terms of their epidemiological danger, that is, it is already possible to enter from Slovenia to Italy, but not from Russia yet. However, it is worth noting that these protocols concern more tourist flow. When you move to work, you are dealing with a different type of visa. Now there is reason to believe that the entry opportunity for highly qualified specialists will be opened earlier.
Those who wanted to move can now consider work options and pass interviews. Even in a stable situation, the process from submitting a resume to a vacancy to relocating always took 3 to 6 months (depending on the country). Often, most of this time is the drafting of international documents. Perhaps now another 2-3 months will be added to this, but this does not cancel the opportunity itself.
At the same time, there will be an increase in the number of remote offers, for those who are not ready to move, but want to work for a foreign company. There will be interesting projects and new opportunities.
Today we are already cautiously optimistic about the future relocation and employment of IT staff. Yes, the borders are still closed. But many companies are now ready to start work remotely. Indeed, someone was unable to adjust to circumstances and lost a job. But a lot of new proposals have appeared. Stay with us and always be up to date with the latest news on the market!
