Electrical Engineer

Electrical engineers are a very important, specialty niche within the engineering community.  They primarily design, develop, test, and supervise the manufacture of electrical equipment.  Some of this equipment includes electric motors; machinery controls, lighting, and wiring in buildings; automobiles; aircraft; radar and navigation systems; and power generation, control, and transmission devices used by electric utilities. 

Although the terms electrical and electronics engineering often are used interchangeably in academia and industry, electrical engineers have traditionally focused on the generation and supply of power, whereas electronics engineers have worked on applications of electricity to control systems or signal processing.  Electrical engineers specialize in areas such as power systems engineering or electrical equipment manufacturing.

Sequence has had a long association working in the electrical engineering sector and has provided a full range of human resources, executive and engineering recruiting and staffing services to utilities of all types. We provide services nationwide to distribution cooperatives, generation and transmission cooperatives, investor-owned utilities, municipal utilities, public utility districts, and industry associations.

Electric distribution systems and operation planning has become increasingly complex at utilities. Pressures in the areas of customer service and reliability coupled with opportunities for automation, distributed generation, and other solutions are changing the shape of strategic plans. 

Our clients have required that we find experience electrical engineers who can assist them in preparing an electric service delivery strategy that focuses on improving customer service and maximizing benefits for each dollar invested in the electric plant, automation, and other efficiency tools. In particular, these engineers are to consider reliability and cost impacts due to the application of alternate protection schemes, distribution automation, load management, distributed generation, outage management systems, and other technologies along with typical pole, wire, and substation alternatives.

We also work with electrical engineers who provide electrical design services for several different types of facilities including commercial, industrial, agricultural, educational and institutional. Design services include providing construction documents for use in bid build or design build projects. 

Sequence knows electrical engineering. 

We have been in the forefront recruiting and staffing in the electrical engineering field. At Sequence, we know and understand the vital role electrical engineers have in the construction, engineering and environmental industries. We are the premier executive recruiting and staffing firm committed to providing employment solutions to these major industries around the world. 

A key to a utility's success is getting information to the right person quickly and in a useable format. The marketplace today expects reliable electric service, prompt and accurate responses to customer inquiries or problems, and efficient business processes and reporting.  We have been able to save our clients substantial dollars and difficulties by finding top quality electrical engineers who have helped them identify and implement the most suitable information and automation technologies for their situation.

In the last one to three years many viable new communication technologies and product advancements have been introduced to the market. These technologies offer utilities many opportunities to support existing and new automation applications. Sequence can help your organization create an employment solution to maximize your communication investments (e.g. new mobile radio system, voice over IP, new SCADA communications networking).
