Demand for Technicians and Engineers Growing
Posted by Bert Maes on January 21, 2010
Given the current downturn and the associated high unemployment in many markets, more people are looking for jobs.
BUT they don’t generally have the skills that organizations are looking for, according to the Manpower 2009 Talent Shortage Survey Results.
Their report shows again that today (2010) employers all over the world are fruitlessly looking for TECHNICALLY-SKILLED specialists:
- Skilled Trades: electricians, bricklayers, carpenters, cabinetmakers, masons, plumbers, welders, etc
- Sales Representatives
- Technicians: primarily production/operations, engineering or maintenance
- Accounting & Finance Staff
- Production Operators
- Secretaries, PAs, Administrative Assistants & Office Support Staff
The demand for engineers and technicians is rising since 15 years!
… And there are many indications that highly-skilled technologists are more wanted than ever…
i.e. those people with advanced hi-tech knowledge, able to manufacture complex goods (with high productivity) in the field of clean energy, robotics, bioengineering, nanotechnology, aerospace,…
