Why is STEM important?
This week I watched yet another news report on the shortage of engineers, programmers and technicians in the United States. This time the focus was on all the job openings in Silicon Valley. It seems that recruiters and hiring managers can’t find enough engineers, software designers and programmers here in the United States so they are hoping to gain permission to increase the number of immigrants from countries like India and China.
Girls… If you focus your sights on a career in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), these recruiters are going to be knocking on your door!
It’s time for our home grown talent here in DC to answer the call. STEM is the future.
