The engineering industry has experienced many changes since the recession. The national unemployment rate in the United States as of 2013 was over 7.3%. However, the engineering industry only saw a 2% rate. This presents challenges to companies seeking skilled engineers for this growing industry. In 2013, there were over 280,000 job openings for engineering related positions. Labor pressures have been high in certain states such as Texas and Virginia to include the states surrounding the Great Lakes. With a competitive compensation, only 4.5% of college graduates are studying engineering. A listing of top engineering company logos in the United States are outlined below.
The most difficult recruits to obtain in the engineering industry are those that have obtained 5-10 years experience. Employment branding has been needed by companies to gather potential candidates away from competitor companies. This has created a surge of businesses hopping on board with social media.
