Tech Schools In Florida: Putting the ‘T’ In STEM Occupations

STEM occupations are growing in demand. This includes jobs in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Special knowledge and skills are needed to excel in each of these areas and the reality is, training in these areas can open many doors of opportunities.

Technology for example, is always advancing. While it’s hard to deny that this is true progress, the fast pace of innovations can make it hard to keep up. In fact, a recent Pew report revealed that many “networked workers” have mixed feelings about the technology they use. They claimed that, although technology adds flexibility, it also adds stress.

There are two basic reasons for their stress.

  • They can’t seem to keep up with the changes in technology.
  • They don’t want to keep up with the changes.

The good news is that those two problems present two opportunities for techies.

  • Employers need IT staff to help the first group.
  • Employers need IT staff to fix the problems the second group creates.

Don’t Minimize the ‘T’ in STEM

What can I do to help you?

The ‘T’ may be second letter, but that doesn’t make it any less important that the first. In fact, it may be the single most important letter in STEM for the next decade, but no one is going to change the acronym to TSEM.
Advances in technology keep accelerating at rates never before realized in the history of man. This fact adds to the demand – and the opportunities – for people who want a career in Information Technology.
