WANTED’s Top 10 Best Places for Industrial Engineers to Look for Work

Share Article

WANTED Technologies ranks cities where hiring demand is highest compared to the available supply of candidates.

Employers have placed nearly 32,000 new online job ads for Industrial Engineers over the past 90 days across the United States; however, in certain cities the hiring demand far outweighs the number of available job candidates. This creates a mis-match – more jobs and not enough workers, or more workers and not enough jobs.

The following list of metro areas where the difference between demand and supply exceed the national averages by the highest margin are the best places for Industrial Engineers to look for work, as measured by WANTED’s Supply/Demand Ratios™.

1.    Manchester, NH
2.    New York, NY
3.    San Diego, CA
4.    Hagerstown, MD
5.    San Francisco, CA
6.    Houston, Texas
7.    Philadelphia, PA
8.    San Jose, CA
9.    Milwaukee, WI
10.    Kalamazoo, MI

Supply/Demand Ratios™ calculate the gap between local demand for workers and the supply of workers available. Each month, WANTED summarizes all job ads for each occupation that appear on online job boards and compares that to the number of employees in each occupation and city, as estimated by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The difference between the demand and supply in each occupation and city is compared to the national average for that occupation. Cities where the mix of demand and supply exceed the national average are good bets for people looking for work.
