re: Engineering salaries and job satisfaction up
Luis Sanchez   8/29/2012 3:27:34 PM
Good. Personally Iíve never felt more satisfied with my job. As an engineer Iím getting to do something I like to do. And learning every day is an important part. I would recommend this career to my children. Of course, one has to be able to see what are the natural assets the young ones bring. It wouldnít be fair to insist in engineering if they struggle much with mathematics and have a great deal of social skills. The economy isnít at its best now, but itís in a good enough spot to allow people to be consuming electronics. A lot of innovation is bringing new products and media delivery is using tablets and phones as the final node. There are top competitors in the industry and they have the budget to invest in new fields, like Intel going to wireless and Qualcomm to processors. All this adds to better salaries in the engineering field. And itís great isnít it?

It's practically 100% unsafe to recommend careers to children. They observe the truth anyway.

This write up reflects the feelings of the engineering family.It is impressive to see that 83% of engineers will recommend an engineering career to their children
