Are STEM Majors Getting Hired after US College?

Nate from Nomad Credit explains the STEM shortage in the U.S. and how that may affect international students ability to gain a job.

  • Many international students coming to study in the U.S. choose to pursue a Masters of Science degree.
  • This can be a good choice, partly because the chances to gain employment after graduating are high.
  • One reason for this is that there is a shortage of STEM majors in the U.S.
  • As technology and the sciences continue to grow, the jobs that correspond with those industries are also growing.
  • Furthermore, this shortage is not going away.
  • As of 2014-2015, there were an additional 230,246 STEM jobs and yet only 30,835 additional STEM graduates.
  • STEM graduates are in hot demand.

We spoke on how the STEM shortage might affect your ability to find a job in a blog post last week.
