Why are STEM jobs so hard to fill?

Employers seek out professionals with proven skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics to drive innovation and get the most out of their investments. Unfortunately for them – and fortunately for you – it seems that most professionals in these areas are out of the job market and already working.

While the supply of available STEM talent is drying up, the market is flooded with available STEM jobs – and the situation is only going to get better for job seekers like you. Seventy-five percent of the fastest growing occupations in the U.S. workforce today require significant mathematics or science skills. By 2018, the number of available STEM jobs is expected to grow significantly, specifically in fields that involve computers (growing by 51 percent), engineers and technicians (28 percent), life and physical sciences (13 percent) and architecture (6 percent). If you have these skills, you should expect to have your pick of great jobs.
