That goes hand in hand with other reports this week that the automakers are having a difficult time finding qualified workers to come and work for them.

re: #1 lawhawk

From your link:

The auto industry’s increased focus on high technology means that many of the workers displaced by the Recession won’t be able to go back to work at Ford or one of its competitors without extensive retraining.

Between 2006 and 2009, Ford eliminated 13,000 white-collar jobs in the U.S. It has since slowly begun ramping up the workforce and after bringing in 1,850 new salaried employees last year it now has a workforce of around 28,000 professionals. So, even with the additional 3,000 coming aboard in 2013, its ranks are well below pre-crash levels.

That is not exactly true. Workers with previous “Big 3” experience are actively recruited. Many of the old apps that were written in the ‘00’s are classic ASP and they are being replaced by .NET. If you had experience working on any of those old apps, that is definitely a plus. But it always helps to stay up to date on changing technologies.
