When it comes to recruiting top talent, Internet companies face a much different picture
than they once did. "Tech workers aren't rushing to work at dot-coms in the way that they
were two to three years ago," Alan Hoffman, a technology jobs expert at Monster.com, told
the E-Commerce Times. And in response to job-seekers' new focus on base salary and benefits
rather than fat stock-option packages, dot-coms have adopted a more traditional approach
to recruiting.

Dot-Coms will ultimately remain appealing to IT professionals because most Dot-Coms push technology to new levels. An IT professional needs to stay on top of the latest trends otherwise risk becoming obsolete.

Well it's true that IT professionals constitute a critical piece in the big picture of a Dot-Com company, but many companies have to find its real business that it is not necessarily the technology field.
The success of a Dot-Com now depends on how advanced is technology, depends on its ability to manage and apply the information to increment the corporate value. And today, Dot-Com companies are hungry for that kind of professionals.
