IBM is laying off thousands of employees, but it’s also hiring like crazy. As IBM transitions from a software and services business to a cloud company, it is letting go workers whose skills carried IBM in the last decade but are no longer in vogue. IBM said last month that it would lay off an unspecified number of people in those legacy businesses, but it announced that it would hire an equal number of people for its high growth units to replace them.The company has posted about 7,000 positions online but said there are even more open positions that haven’t yet been advertised. All told, IBM (IBM, Tech30) told CNNMoney it hopes to fill about 20,000 open positions. The Wall Street Journal was the first to report that number.
