What is the job outlook for Electrical Engineers?

I am about to finish my BS in Electrical Engineering and was considering getting a MS in EE but considering how the economoy is and the fact that the Bureau of Labor Statistics say it should grow "slower than average".

Hahaha!! go with a masters. If the healthcare thing passes, that is the last thing you want to do. Lower wages, horrible work invironment, etc. You can start work with the BS but you will get payed more with a MS.

I agree with Bimmer, if you decide to stay in school, go for the MS in EE... But MS can be quite different from BS.. more pure math.. and mainly R&D, papers , thesis if you like sort of work go for it.. Otherwise, go find a job... There is a lot of job that are not advertised...especially in EE.
