There’s a growing demand by United States manufacturers for experienced production workers, engineers and technicians. For the first time in over 10 years, the Bureau of Labor Statistics accounts that employment has been rising steadily and output has even grown 38 percent since the end of the recession! It’s a truly exciting time to be a part of this industry as some of the most exciting innovations of our time are created, such as robotics, automation and 3D printing.
The National Association of Manufacturers claimed that manufacturers in the U.S. are the most productive in the world, even surpassing the worker productivity of any other major manufacturing economy. This leads to higher wages, benefits and living standards.
Outdated notions of manufacturing offering a dirty, unsafe work environment can be completely put to rest. Today, manufacturing companies offer tidy, safe atmospheres featuring state of the art technologies and polished showrooms. Staffing no longer consists solely of entry-level repetitive jobs, and typically includes high-skilled, well-educated professionals.
There’s no shortage of engineering jobs in the U.S.; in fact, there is a huge demand for highly skilled workers as the Baby Boomer generation has begun retiring in record numbers, and college enrollment in Engineering is not keeping up with demand. Due to these facts, the engineering field is projected to offer 250,000 new jobs across the country by 2023. Applicants with specialized skills in top engineering fields such as infrastructure, biomedical, automotive, and aerospace will face even better prospects. High demand for qualified engineers is reflected in the impressive salaries being offered, with the median income of engineers ranging in the area of $92,000 annually.
With the right skills and work experience, it will not be difficult for talented engineers to find a great job. In addition to traditional technical skills, engineer applicants will need to be creative and innovative to stand out from the crowd. Employers are seeking individuals who offer creative problem solving skills, adaptability, and familiarity with new technologies. Strong communication skills are also critical, as well as the ability to make informed decisions, and process and analyze complex data. The most important skill an engineer should possess is a passion and commitment to their trade. With that comes and understanding that their work can change the world, and allows them to find deep satisfaction in their day-to-day tasks.
Atlantic Associates, Inc. (AAI) is thrilled to be getting involved with these growing industries! Seeking a career in either field? Contact AAI today and we’ll help you succeed in the world of Engineering and Manufacturing.
