ANTON, I hope your right my friend! ...But it might be more of the "blind pig" thing! ...
..."Even a blind pig finds an acorn in the forest every once in a while" ...In case you were wondering.

Its picking up...I got interviewed for and accepted a job I never even applied for! I had my resume out on the career sites and got an email one day from someone looking for piping/mechanical designers. Got interviewed (one phone, one in person) and started 2 weeks later. Fantastic company, wonderful work environment (and the money was right too). Sometimes it takes relocating to find a job...always be open to that.

Just because your country announces that it will be increasing its oil supply it doesn't guarantee there will be work in that country for the increase in this oil supply in FEED and or Detailed Design.

Globalisation means that tenders will be sent to whom ever the company wishes to send them, quotes will be gathered and a decision will be made on many factors, one of them being cost.

So you might find that a German company is doing the design in Germany On PDMS or PDS and not in the home country where the facilities are going to be built.

That's globalisation for you.

To answer the OP when will it pick up?
With humongous design centres being built in India and China servicing the whole world and with their designers and engineers working for one third of the price of their counter parts in the west.

It may never get back to what it was.

I think the original topic is not meant to address status of piping design jobs in US alone but on a global perspective.

So what if the detail engineering jobs are outsourced in India, China, Philippines or other Asian country. It could only mean that the career itself is growing globally.

Where dose that leave you and your colleagues for work in your home country?
