US Employment Figures Up For Engineers, Computer Pros

It appears that employment opportunities for electrical and electronics engineers, software engineers, computer scientists, and systems analysts are matching levels seen in 2008. Unverifiable on the street level, this claim comes from the Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics. For electrical and electronics engineers (EEs), employment grew 7.8% from the fourth quarter of 2009 to the first quarter of 2010, and now stands 16.1% above its a low in the first quarter of 2009. Software engineering employment remains 5.3% above its first-quarter 2009 low. For computer scientists and systems analysts, first-quarter employment allegedly grew 4.7% and is now 14.5% above its second-quarter 2009 low. For more details, visit http://www.ieeeusa.org/careers.
