STEM is the acronym for Science Technology Engineering and Math. The idea of STEM, and STEM jobs have been at the forefront of the national debate over job creation and education  lately. There have been major campaigns by the government and other organizations to focus public education on STEM so that when students enter the workforce after college, they are better prepared to compete in a competitive workforce at home and abroad. STEM jobs are in high demand, and as WANTED Analytics shows us there are positions available if you have the qualifications.



Within STEM are the computer and mathematical, architecture and engineering, and life and physical science occupations. In May, there were approximately 1.1 million job ads for STEM careers advertised online, a 4% year-over-year increase in demand. Computer and mathematical occupations were the most in-demand with 840,000 jobs. There were 265,000 jobs available for architects and engineers, and about 85,000 for science positions. Below are the most commonly advertised job titles in each area.
