Science, Technology, Engineering, Math – Careers that Help you Secure Jobs
The Journal of College Admission reports that the U.S. has one of the lowest rates of students seeking STEM degrees (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math).

The lack of professionals devoted to these areas allow for offer to be higher than demand. This is why although we traverse a recession, we can still find jobs that are not easily sourced – because there are not enough professionals in those fields to fill them out.
Think about it… If a major in one of these fields of study is something of interest to you, there is great opportunity in following these types of career paths. Read the full article Indicators of Success in STEM Majors: A Cohort Study
