System i Recruiter Nate Viall Does NBC Nightly News
January 28, 2008 Timothy Prickett Morgan
Hey, if you were watching the NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams on January 17, you might have seen a familiar System i personality on the broadcast. Nate Viall, a long-time recruiter and compensation expert from the AS/400, iSeries, and System i market based in Des Moines, Iowa, was interviewed for a segment of the newscast that talked about the gender pay gap.
This theme is one that Viall has discussed from time to time, and it is somewhat controversial to suggest that there is no gender pay gap in the IT marketplace. Back in May 2007, Viall did an op-ed letter for the Des Moines Register on gender pay inequities in response to a report called Behind the Pay Gap put together by the American Association of University Women. A few weeks later, Viall did a longer piece focused on the issue in the June 11, 2007, edition of this newsletter.
