For engineers, job listings in the mining, quarrying, oil, and gas-extraction industries climbed 68%, compared to last year, while jobs in the utility industries jumped 35%.

The Index showed an increase in job listings for all 28 U. S. metro areas. But the most significant upticks were in Detroit (51%), Philadelphia (40%), Chicago (29%), Cincinnati (28%), and Cleveland (23%).

Europe and India saw even greater increases in job postings than the U. S., registering 24% and 21%, respectively.
