However, while a STEM degree can open doors to lucrative careers, many employers are finding that, without a liberal arts background, many STEM graduates lack the necessary communication, management, and collaboration skills that are necessary in the workforce.
It’s no secret that science, technology, engineering, and math jobs are the way of the future. STEM jobs are expected to grow almost 2 times as fast as other occupations, yet some people believe that it has become harder to foster an interest in STEM in high school students today.
