The shortage of qualified engineers in this country is well known, and certain disciplines are particularly hard hit. The retirement of baby boomers, the reductions in hiring in past years, and the proposed expansion of infrastructure projects contribute to the challenges of identifying and attracting senior level engineers who can serve in key management leadership positions.

Engineering firms may see their business ebb and flow with the economy and/or other market factors. Nevertheless, even during difficult and uncertain economic times, most firms must address voids and/or inefficiencies in their project and management teams.

Every engineering firm is different in terms of size, area(s) of specialization, and culture. To be successful in recruiting new members to your team, you need an experienced engineering recruiter who understands those differences. Most engineering headhunters do not appreciate or understand the unique characteristics of the profession nor the types of people who will be successful in your firm.
