Hiring for Mechanical Engineers Gets a Power Boost

Wanted Analytics (03/28/12) Abby Lombardi

More than 9,000 job advertisements for mechanical engineers were posted online in February, a 10% increase from a year earlier. Companies in Detroit posted the highest volume of job ads for mechanical engineers, many in engineering services, automobile manufacturing, and automobile part manufacturing. Many of the jobs require applicants to have computer-aided design skills. Recruiters in Detroit are facing a shortage of qualified talent and likely will see a longer time-to-fill than other regions of the country. Other cities with high demand for mechanical engineers include Houston, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Boston.
