Prepare for a career in STEM

What can you do with a STEM degree?

Recently, the U.S. Census Bureau issued a report that 74% of people with bachelor’s degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics do not hold jobs in STEM occupations. Again, STEM isn’t about a certain degree of occupation, it is about problem solving skills. The Washington Post posted the official list of STEM occupations as categorized by the U.S. Census Bureau. Take a look and see if one of these occupations interests you.
