STEM Skills Take Priority over Bachelor's Degree

A recent study by the Brookings Institute has come up with a surprising fact about job openings in the field of science, technology, engineering, and math.

 

The jobs requiring expertise in those fields, even when they only require a high-school level education, took longer to fill then non-STEM jobs which require a college education. Among jobs requiring a college-level education, the STEM openings still took much longer to fill. Relative to other jobs requiring the same level of education, the STEM jobs also generally enjoy a higher average salary. Some of the most difficult-to-fill job openings include jobs in STEM-intensive health care practitioner occupations, jobs in skilled-construction trades, database and statistical technical fields, engineers, software developers, and general maintenance and repair ocupations.

 

For the complete report, check it out over out the Brookings Institute website. And don't forget to keep studying those STEM subjects!
