Only thing I've heard is that countries such as Germany (actually, I only heard this for Germany, no idea about S.Korea, Japan or some sectors of the U.S.) hire a huge amount of engineers. Had some German friends tell me that even though there are so many engineers there's always a huge demand in order to stay competitive and to keep the economy running as they rely heavily on exporting technological goods rather than resources.

This finally gives me a good reason to push myself to learn German, which I've always wanted to.

No idea what the stance there is for aerospace. But competition seems fierce as well. My friends older brother, who did electrical engineering and specialized in nanotechnology (smtg even more precise but I forgot what) had trouble finding work there. but that may be due to getting too specialized too soon. I hear it's much better to get into a company and then do a masters or PhD in accordance to the companies needs (and your interests).
