Peel back the surface of devices you can't live without today — whether that's your smartphone, your tablet or even your IoT-enabled refrigerator — and you'll find the fingerprints of engineers everywhere. In fact, engineers are masterminding much of today's innovations, which means that demand for these innovators has never been greater.
Just last year, for example, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that job openings for engineers outnumbered trained engineers available to fill them. While the causes of this talent shortage are manifold, for example, each year around 10 percent of students awarded engineering degrees wind up pursuing careers in finance (as opposed to more traditional technical engineering roles), the forecast is unlikely to improve any time soon.
Still more worrisome, in cutting-edge fields like software systems engineering or control and calibration engineering — areas that are driving innovation today — the lack of available engineering talent is forecast to be especially acute, not only in the U.S. but around the globe.
In this context, and with the already fierce competition for top talent only heating up, many leading companies are turning to strategic partners for support. Here's how Randstad can help.
