How SEL Competes Against Global Giants to Attract Engineers

Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (SEL), a manufacturer of sophisticated equipment for utilities and other power systems, is looking to hire scores of electrical engineers right now. Good luck with that, most recruiters would say, given that SEL is competing against the likes of Google and Facebook, each of which, on any given day, is trying to hire hundreds of electrical engineers, and offering top dollar and the prestige of working at one of the world’s hottest technology companies.

But guess what? Despite a shortage of engineers, SEL will fill the 66 engineering jobs listed on its website, as of this writing, and the hundreds more it is likely to post in the years to come.
