Los Angeles' Engineering Talent Landscape: Aerospace

RE_TalentPipelinePhoto_june2015_sized
 

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 continue increasing significantly over the next decade.

With the growing demand for qualified engineering talent, attracting and keeping skilled individuals is all the more difficult – especially within the aerospace industry in Los Angeles where the most “in-demand” jobs like Aeronautical Engineers, Manufacturing Engineers, Quality Engineers, Systems Engineers, and Project Engineers are difficult 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 most in-demand aerospace engineering roles in Los Angeles. If you need any assistance filling any of these "hard to fill" roles, please click here and select "Contact to learn more."
