Engineers, Engineers, Engineers, ...

This morning, I found the following article in italic. It is funny. When my professional becomes the number one "hardest jobs to fill in America"? Even with that, if I could start all over again, I probably would become a politicians first, then a lawyer, followed by a doctor. Engineer? No, of course, not.

My family, the immigration-generation of Lees are all engineers. For our next generation, only few engineers and scientists left. The majority of Lees are gradually but surely transforming its into more doctors or MBAs. For our next-next generation, probably no Lee will become an engineer.

The Hardest Jobs to Fill in America

In today's economic climate, it's hard to believe there are jobs that employers are having a hard time filling. But they do exist, according to the staffing firm Manpower's annual talent shortage survey. From the 2,019 employers who responded to the survey in January, Manpower created this list of the 10 hardest jobs to fill in the U.S.

1. Engineer

There are several reasons it's hard for employers to find qualified engineers, says Jonas Prising, Manpower's president for the Americas. First, employers don't want to hire two or three engineers with a variety of specialties, they want one engineer who is trained in several areas. Another reason is that there are far too few new college graduates in engineering to replace retiring engineers. Also, the Obama administration's pledge to rebuild America's infrastructure is increasing the need for talented engineers.
