Have you considered training graduates? I hear there are a lot of them 
out of work. I see a lot of Perl jobs wanting and expecting nothing less 
than very experienced Perl programmers. If there aren't enough companies 
willing to give fresh programmers the experience, how are they supposed 
to get there?
