There’s a great info-graphic and article on Adecco, concerning the widening gap between available Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics (STEM) candidates and those job vacancies waiting to be filled.
I have much to be thankful for this year. In particular, I have Adecco to thank for placing me at a great, international science-based company — Thermo Fisher Scientific. Our relatively small local branch is a great group of people to be working with. It’s challenging, new, exciting, and growing.
So it’s odd to think that I’m part of only 8% of all STEM grads still doing this 10 years later.
So where are all the STEM people? It’s a strange dilemma. If nothing else, the problem makes me thankful that the job future looks more secure today than it did years prior.
