Dallas, 9/22/2016

Engineering remains one of the highest-paid fields requiring only a bachelor’s profession, and much has been done to try to open the field to more women. But a recent study at MIT shows that 40% of women who earn engineering degrees either quit or never enter the field.

Juli Smith, president of the Smith Consulting Group, which specializes in civil engineering and IT, tells GoodCall that she’s spoken with many women engineers and the reasons for leaving the profession often vary by age. “Many experienced women hit the ‘good ‘old boy’ glass ceiling, rarely making it into the executive suite; they become disenchanted and they get into other careers.”

Dallas, 9/7/2016

While many college grads lament the difficulties of finding meaningful work with good wages, there’s another side to the employment story. Companies lament the difficulties of finding workers – especially skilled ones – and keeping them. According to Randstad’s 2016 Workplace Trends Report, 79% of hiring managers say it’s difficult to find applicants who meet the job description for open positions.

It’s a sentiment shared by Juli Smith, president of the Jackson, MI-based Smith Consulting Group – especially in civil engineering. Smith tells GoodCall, “If you were going into your freshman or sophomore year of college during the recession or graduating during the 2007-2011 years, there were very few civil engineering firms hiring interns.” As a result, she says many engineers went back to school and earned a degree in another field. “So now, there is a large vacuum for talent in the market for civil engineers with 5-10 years of experience.”
