The Randstad Engineering Employee Confidence Index skyrocketed in the second quarter of 2013 to 61.9, rising a notable seven points from the previous quarter, according to a new survey conducted online by Harris Interactive on behalf of Randstad Engineering, among 119 U.S. workers employed in the engineering industry.
The index has reached over 60 only twice since 2008. In fact, this quarter engineering professionals had some of the highest employee confidence levels when analyzed on a sector basis, stronger than those in IT, office and administrative, manufacturing and healthcare, as tracked by Randstad.
Engineers’ Confidence In The Economy Spikes
The survey also found that two-in-five (40 percent) engineering professionals believe the economy is getting stronger, a considerable spike from 26 percent in the first quarter of 2013. Their views on the economy may be a contributing factor to the powerful sense of optimism among engineering professionals regarding job prospects. Over six-in-10 (62 percent) engineers feel confident in their ability to find a new job, representing an increase of 11 percentage points from the first quarter of 2013.
Skill Shortage Persists Among Engineers
“While it is great to see an increase in confidence among engineering professionals, I’m not surprised, given the skills shortage among engineers,” said Richard Zambacca, President of Randstad Engineering. “Candidates have a wider range of options as far as job opportunities, which not only drives confidence but fosters overall fulfillment in their careers.
What Employers Want: Manufacturing and Quality Engineers
“Engineers continue to experience a healthy job market. Within the automotive manufacturing industry, engineering is among the most in-demand occupations, according to Wanted Analytics, with the most sought after job titles being manufacturing engineer and quality engineer,” continued Zambacca.
