3:34 PM | Where are the young STEM workers?
If you’d rather not move into your parents’ basement after you finish college, a degree in a STEM subject like computing or engineering is a pretty good bet. CTEq research reveals that, between 2011 and 2014, unemployment among recent college graduates with bachelor’s degrees or higher in computing was just 4.5 percent. Among newly-minted engineers: only 2.2 percent.  In non-STEM fields, by contrast, unemployment for recent grads with bachelor’s or higher stood at 7.0 […]

5:12 PM | Young? Ambitious? Go into Manufacturing!
Manufacturing doesn’t leap to mind as an industry that attracts young people. Yet recent workforce data show that advanced manufacturing, which requires strong STEM skills, has become a magnet for young workers just starting out in their careers. This might point to a bright future for this maker industry—presuming a troubling lack of workforce diversity doesn’t stunt its growth. Tags:  jobs & workforce
