Are most engineering jobs public sector?

3 posts in this topic

I don't know if this is the appropriate thread to post this, but I'm currently in college studying mechanical engineering and computer science. One issue that I'm facing is that when I was 19 I got arrested for a misdemeanor which ended up with the charge being dropped and my record getting expunged. The reason why I'm asking this question is because I'm wondering if most engineering jobs today are all public sector? I'm curious to know if there are still private sector engineering jobs out there and if not does this mean I'm screwed now since I have a past arrest record even though its expunged?

I would say no. No, most engineering jobs are not private sector. But if the charges were dropped and expunged, why would it be a problem?

There is a great balance between public and private sector.  In my 17 years working as an engineer, I've not had one public sector job.
