I'm a process control engineer. I picked this job specifically because the demand was booming and the technical jargon on the postings scares even the brightest engineers away. I have steady work and we never have enough engineers. I get calls every week about new jobs opportunities. The demand is high and the supply is low. I'm making 15k more than I was 6 years ago and I haven't changed companies or positions. I have offers to double my salary and the only reason that I haven't taken them is that I was waiting for my girl to graduate. All this because I once worked summer on a production line, but someone came in to automate the process and I wasn't hired back. So I took an internship as an automation engineer and never looked back. The market changes so you have to adapt.
