EngineerJobs.com Releases Findings on Engineer Hiring Across the U.S.

A new report released by EngineerJobs.com, the leading job site for engineers in the United States and Canada, shows that engineers remain in high demand in California, Texas and New York, while certain demographic markets are hot beds for engineers in specific disciplines.

Taking the lead, research showed that Newark, Elizabeth and several other New Jersey cities are looking for software engineers. Currently, there are more than 10,000 software engineering vacancies in Newark alone. Rounding out the cities and metro areas looking for software engineers are Westchester, N.Y.; Rockville, Md., Menlo Park, Calif.; and Oakland, Calif.

“Certain markets like Northern California have long been known as meccas of opportunity for skilled IT workers and engineers,” said Shane Pike, CEO of EngineerJobs.com. “However, the openings for engineers in certain disciplines are equally great in other markets, like Newark and Houston. This shows that engineers in many sectors can look beyond the traditional markets to find their perfect job.”

Biomedical engineers, who are becoming increasingly more in demand, are likely to find openings in these cities: Cambridge, Mass.; Parsippany, N.J.; and Menlo Park, Calif.

The top cities for environmental engineers are Bethesda, Md.; Newark, N.J.; and Houston, Texas. And with the link, two of the top cities for computer engineers and electrical engineers are Fremont, Calif. and Rockville, Md.

For engineers looking to go west, a number of engineering disciplines are hiring in the San Francisco area. In Fremont, Calif., there are 2,822 openings currently available for electrical engineers and about 931 computer engineering jobs. In addition to computer hardware and software, the Bay Area also has about 642 mechanical engineering jobs available in the Fremont area, with Menlo Park, Mountain View and Palo Alto close behind.

The top nine states hiring the most engineers across the majority of disciplines include:

  • California
  • Texas
  • New York
  • Illinois
  • Virginia
  • Massachusetts
  • Pennsylvania
  • Michigan
  • Florida

The District of Columbia also ranks in this top 10 list.

“As engineers remain in high demand, organizations need a strategic approach to finding and retaining engineers,” Pike added. “For engineers looking to move or change jobs, the outlook remains positive with many options and openings literally from coast to coast.”
