The Randstad Engineering Employee Confidence Index, a measure of overall confidence among US engineers has risen above six tenths (61.9%), for the first time since 2008.

The survey, which looked at 119 US workers currently employed in engineering, showed that two-in-five (40%) engineering professionals believe that the economy is becoming stronger, an increase of more than a tenth (14%) from the first quarter in 2013.

Additionally, just over one-in-three (35%) engineering workers believe there are more jobs available and three fifths (62%) feel confident in their ability to find a new job.

Research shows that more than seven-in-ten (73%) say they are not likely to lose their jobs over the next twelve months, whilst a third (33%) say they are likely to start looking for a new job.

Richard Zambacca, President of Randstad Engineering, said:

"While it is great to see an increase in confidence among engineering professionals, I'm not surprised, given the skills shortage… Candidates have a wider range of options as far as job opportunities, which not only drives confidence but fosters overall fulfilment in their careers.”
