Our cover story for this month’s Journal focuses on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields as they relate to both education and employment. We take an in-depth look at how STEM-related jobs have remained in high demand as high schools and colleges work to train future employees in this curriculum.
Notably there is a gap between the skill sets that employers are seeking in STEM fields and the amount of qualified people who are available to fill them.
