Engineering jobs pointing up in the US this year

The engineering field is poised to develop rapidly this year, presenting a strong job market for the industry, according to a press release.

The Randstad Engineering Employee Confidence Index indicated a top level for additional industries like finance and accounting. IT, manufacturing and logistics also registered strongly on the index.

"According to a recent U.S. News and World Report, engineering is expected to be the number one in-demand job for 2014. The sentiments recorded by our Index in the last few months of the year reflect that demand and resulted in sustainable levels of confidence across the engineering sector," president Richard Zambacca with Randstad Engineering said, according to the press release. "We see 2014 being a particularly good year for quality, control and process engineers, with the energy industry offering promising careers to those with the right certifications."

The poll also determined that 60 percent of survey respondents hold a brighter outlook in their capacities to land a new job. Engineering and IT jobs expanded by 0.38 percent in February from the month prior, according to Staffing Industry.
