The Changing Landscape of Skill Requirements

Engineering is a constantly evolving career that not only requires its professionals to keep abreast of current technologies and approaching trends, but is also now asking them to stretch beyond the limitations of their experience and out of the familiar comfort zone of time-honored tradition.

With the need for many companies to globalize in order to grow their client base, more and more engineers today are being required to develop a broad range of additional interpersonal and managerial skills not traditionally required. Company downsizing and outsourcing has also had a transformative effect on the nature of the engineering career. Professional staffing agencies draw from their pool of talent to locate individuals of diverse skills and match them with employers looking to fill engineering jobs.
