I noticed a recent posting here that stated:
NOTE: Candidate should be a permanent employee in current company

I've seen similar requirements in other places and have wondered about the reasoning.

Since I am a member of this board, I thought I could ask without putting anyone on the defensive, and I certainly don't mean to start a fight.

So, what is the reason you would only want people who are currently working?

The only theory I've heard that makes any sense is that folks who are out of work will apply for ANYTHING, even if they are not qualified for it.

You put up a serious question actually, Ed.

In an attempt to answer - I do not want to sound biased on geographical locations; however, do you see such "NOTE" in the advertisements for the locations other than "cheap-IT-labor-nations"* as well?

* - “cheap” simply refers to wages in respective areas around the globe. It should not be considered as a question on the availability of skilled-man-power at those locations.

Hello,

Many of my clients have/had a policy of not even interviewing people (full-time or contract) who had not worked in several months/years. One manager made the comment that if no one else would hire them, why should she?

As has been said many times in groups when this came up in conversation - "It is easier to find work when you're already working".
