In normal times, graduating with an engineering degree is a surefire way to find work post-graduation. Studying engineering is not like becoming an expert in Victorian literature or analyzing the history of the circus clown – engineering is a practical, in-demand skill, and countless companies across Denver need your help right now.
The problem, of course, is that these are not normal times. Given the uncertain times we live in, companies are hesitant to make long-term commitments when hiring and are not pursuing recent graduates with the same fervor as they would have this time last year. It also doesn’t help that lay-offs nationwide have led to an increase in the available worker pool.
With that being said, these companies are not going to be able to staff their ranks with experienced contractors forever. They need recent graduates like you to move forward but are unsure how to proceed with limited in-person interactions, fewer internship opportunities, and other 2020-related changes to the workplace.
Contract work is a great way to get your feet wet in engineering and has the potential to benefit businesses in Denver and recent graduates alike. Temporary work pays considerably more than an internship. There’s just one catch – companies expect their contract engineers to have skills and experience. You might have the former, but the latter is hard to prove.
That’s where engineering staffing agencies come in.
Engineering staffing agencies in Denver help recent STEM graduates get ready for the “real world”. In addition to matching your skillset and experience to the positions you are most suitable for; we also add a level of assurance for the employer.
Businesses in Denver don’t necessarily have the time to differentiate between the inexperienced engineers who possess the skills and intelligence to learn quickly on the job and the inexperienced engineers who don’t.
As an engineering staffing agency, making that evaluation is part of what we do. When Expect, or another top technical recruiting firm, sends out a contract engineer, the business owner or hiring manager knows that he or she has been vetted by an industry expert and is “hirable”.
The best part? This stamp of approval is just scratching the surface of what we can do for recent graduates. Reach out today to make your Denver engineering job search easier, more productive, and less stressful.
