Held every November 8th, National STEM Day inspires people to pursue occupations in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Because they are crucial to manufacturing and advancing technologies, the number of STEM jobs is skyrocketing at a time when fewer students are interested in going into these fields. National STEM Day focuses on bringing attention to the benefits of working in STEM jobs in hopes of attracting innovative workers.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) predicts the number of STEM jobs to grow by 8.8 percent between 2018 and 2028. Those who work in STEM often find themselves at the forefront of groundbreaking technologies. STEM jobs are also competitive in compensation– the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) says that graduates with STEM degrees will continue to earn the highest starting salaries in their class.

STEM jobs require strong technical knowledge, science and math skills, along with problem-solving skills. Strong analytical and communication skills are essential, as are a positive attitude and ability to work in a fast-paced, team-oriented, and demanding environment. STEM workers must be self-directed, have excellent initiative, and possess strong organizational skills. These fields may be challenging but they are also very rewarding in many of them are used in the process to bring new products and technology to life.

TPS is a strong supporter of the STEM movement in that many of their jobs rely on skillsets in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. In addition to hiring in the STEM field, TPS’ products are supplied to many industries operating within the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics fields.
