Report: STEMM Demand Will Outpace Supply of GraduatesNovember 18, 2016 |
by Trent (Frugal Scholar)
The President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology estimates there will be 1 million fewer graduates in the fields of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine over the next decade than the nation is expected to need. Among the biggest potential losers due to this shortfall is the federal government, which must compete with private enterprise for the brightest minds in the STEMM fields.
Despite these numbers, the federal government has yet to develop a strategy to ensure that it replenishes its STEMM workforce as older employees retire.
