Featured Candidates!

COVID may be dampening demand for qualified new employees in many industries, but the need for skilled, well trained, and certified engineering employees remains robust in the Infrastructure Engineering marketplace. Many firms are learning to function with the concept of “remote” employment moving forward. It is expected that funding will increase in most infrastructure specialties, therefore the requirement for capable engineering talent will continue to intensify. Salaries will continue to climb upward as quality employees continue to be scarce, and certainly more perishable.

Please check the short list of available applicants below. Pay close attention to geographic preferences (although “remote” job offerings buffer most requirements). These applicants are very volatile because our bulletin reaches over 3000 employer contacts in the Delaware Valley alone. We are only one source of interviews available. If you have immediate requirements and don’t see a suitable applicant, let us know please. We have over 70,000 applicants in our database and send them a bi-weekly Job Opportunities Bulletin for their review.

Our fees and guarantees have historically remained quite competitive.

Contact me, Ken Strongin, to discuss your company’s current needs – the STEP database numbers over 70,000 candidates, and we will be reaching out to them as job opportunities come available.
