Automotive Industry Increases Hiring Demand for Engineers by 137%

Date: June 1 2011

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 01, 2011
Engineers are the most in-demand position by auto manufacturers over the past 90 days, with more than 2,200 new jobs posted online, according to WANTED Analytics ( the leading source of real-time business intelligence for the talent marketplace. This represents a 137% growth from 950 during the same time period in 2010.

Detroit currently has the highest demand with more than 195 of the ads. There are approximately 2,700 Engineers working in Detroit, meaning there are 14 candidates for every job announced over the past 90 days. In 2010 there were 17 candidates for every available job.

With the growth in the number of positions, competition for this talent pool has also increased in Detroit. Recruiters looking to fill positions in this area will find it considerably more difficult than the US average, based on the Hiring Scale™. However, Detroit employers may find it beneficial to source candidates in the Grand Rapids or Cleveland markets, where competition has remained low for this talent pool. Employers in these two alternatives will likely see open positions filled more quickly, therefore reducing recruiting time and expenses.

The Hiring Scale measures conditions in local job markets by comparing hiring demand and labor supply. The Hiring Scale™ is part of the WANTED Analytics platform that offers business intelligence for the talent marketplace.
