Why There is a Shortage of SharePoint Experts

I was browsing thru the LinkedIn discussion boards and encountered this very interesting string of discussion.

Why there is a shortage of SharePoint Experts.

The question is discussing about is there a shortage of SharePoint experts in the US, or globally.  To summarize the string can a person get enough experience on the job in 1 year to be considered an Expert.

Wow Expert, well in many disciplines a expert can be achieved thru exams and OJT.  I am a certified Computer Forensic Professional.  It took a few years of experience, and a series of certifications.  Key it took me a few years of experience, I could not have done it in just a few months.  Too many variables within the technologies. Now lets take that into SharePoint, this global enterprise solution….seriously 1 year of experience and be an expert. 

I like what Mark Jones blogged about.  If you are interested take a look.

Lets see how it plays out over the next few years with all the folks coming in and carrying that title.
