    Last year, pink slips were seemingly everywhere for engineers and computer scientists, as the likes of Texas Instruments and Microsoft laid off employees in record numbers. Things are better for engineers this year, but the signals are still mixed. Tech companies plan to hire at least as many electrical engineers as last year, but those already laid off are having a hard time finding jobs. And whi... View full abstract»
