Matrix President Quoted in NJBIZ On Growing Demand 
for Infrastructure Engineers


Jayne Warne discusses the shortage of infrastructure engineering students.

Florham Park, NJ — Jayne Warne, PE, President and Co-Founder, Matrix New World Engineering (Matrix), was featured in NJBIZ.  The article “Capacity Limits,” highlighted the Biden administration's new push to rebuild the nation's infrastructure.

Warne discussed the importance of infrastructure engineering services. She emphasized there is no shortage of engineering students, but there seems to be a shortage of infrastructure engineering students. “There seems to be so much more opportunity in technology fields, that many students are more inclined to become IT engineers rather than traditional infrastructure engineers. The lack of engineers available to work on infrastructure in this country is a real concern. And considering our infrastructure is literally falling apart, this is even more of a concern.”

As quoted throughout the article, Warne stated, “It’s not just the need for “traditional” jobs in civil engineering, but also the need for experienced multidisciplinary engineers working in resiliency and renewable technology. To fill open positions, Matrix actively posts on job boards and platforms like LinkedIn, and we occasionally engage recruiters. However, our best resource for finding new qualified employees is our own staff. Our staff knows professionals in the industry that they work with, went to school with, or met at a meeting. Our staff are our best recruiters to let talented candidates know about Matrix and how it is working here. And we offer recruiting incentives for any referred candidates that get hired.”
