It is concerning to see more of a talent gap surfacing in the engineering sector as more Baby Boomers retire from the industry and not enough students graduate with degrees within this field. As a result, demand for engineering professionals is expected to increase significantly over the next decade. According to Randstad’s Hot Jobs for 2015, demand for engineering professionals is expected to increase significantly over the next decade.

With the growing demand for qualified engineering talent, attracting and keeping skilled individuals is all the more difficult – especially in the Boston market where the most “in-demand” jobs like  Mechanical Engineers, Electrical Engineers, Quality Engineers, Manufacturing Engineers, and Process Engineers are relatively hard to fill.

The impact of this shortage has far-reaching negative organizational effects and successful companies understand specific market conditions, leverage contingent workforces, and have streamlined and improved their overall hiring process.

Take a look below at the current conditions for the Top 5 most in-demand roles in your market and let us know if you need assistance filling these or any other engineering positions.
