According to Wanted Analytics: “In the past 30 days, more than 48,000 new jobs were advertised online for Engineers, making it one of the most demanded occupations in America. At an overall 10% year-over-year increase, this field is one of the more difficult positions for corporate recruiters and staffing firms to fill.”
Wanted Analytics continues: “Hiring demand across the US varies by location. The metropolitan area that has seen the highest volume of new engineering job ads over the past 30 days was Houston, with 1,900. Detroit, however, has seen the highest year-over-year growth at 68%. Seattle had the second highest growth at 56%. Boston, New York and Washington, DC have seen declines compared to the same 30-day period in 2010.”
