Seems like the difference between a developer and an engineer varies by company.
Regardless, I can attest that the technology field is pretty hot right now. I'm not currently looking and I still get unsolicited calls from recruiters. I could easily make $10K more by switching companies now. Unfortunately, I have not had an offer from a better company and I like what I do right now.
Unfortunately, the US massively shot itself in the foot. Many college students jumped from Computer Science a few years ago and the experience gap I predicted has come true. A lot of students are gunshy about the technology field after the dotcom bust. Combine that with a general aversion by American students to any subjects that contain a so much as a whiff of math and science and it makes generation of new talent very difficult indeed.
