The most in-demand (and aging) engineering jobs
Forbes
Not pre-med. Not business. Not computer science. The most popular college major choice for high school seniors surveyed by CareerBuilder — the majority of whom already have a career in mind — is engineering.

The Globe and Mail
As the number of graduate students across North America skyrocketed over the past decade — with Ontario graduate enrollments alone doubling from about 10,000 to 20,000 — competition for the increasingly scarce full-time, tenure-stream faculty positions has become fierce.

WVXU

In the United States, more than 40,000 temporary employees known as postdoctoral research fellows are doing science at a bargain price. And most postdocs are being trained for jobs that don't actually exist. Academic institutions graduate an overabundance of biomedical Ph.D.s — and this imbalance is only getting worse, as research funding from the National Institutes of Health continues to wither.
