IT Hiring:  Don't Care / Skimp On What You Don't Know About

Particularly among the lazy, there is an overwhelming tendency to not care about, and so skimp on, what they don't know about. If organizations start with no IT competence — that's why they are IT hiring — then they don't know about IT. Not only will they then not know how to hire IT competence, they won't care and will want to skimp on this. Not caring, they may hire based on diversity and/or political correctness and/or just if they like the person, like friends; see IT Hiring: Trading IT Competence for Diversity, IT Hiring: Trading IT Competence for Political Correctness, and/or IT Hiring: IT Incompetence Breeds Disloyalty and Corruption. Skimping, they will not pay enough to get IT competence, like hiring supposedly-cheap IT incompetent foreigners; see IT Hiring: Foreigners.
