I have been an engineer most of my life (I now quintuple as engineer, product manager, designer, c-level exec, and bimmerfest liaison) and I know exactly why you are probably overlooked: being an engineer, you probably wear jeans and a T-shirt that is frayed around the neck!

I know. I've been there. LOL!

Now, I make sure I drive my nicest vehicle and wear 12 layers of clothing with a handkerchief in my pocket and a scarf around my neck so I look like I'm straight off the cover of GQ and now I am only overlooked 50% of the time!

See, when the Government spends money, it creates jobs; whereas when the money is left in the hands of Taxpayers, God only knows what they do with it. Bake it into pies, probably. Anything to avoid creating jobs. - Dave Barry
