STEM jobs are on the rise – and so are internships. Find the perfect opportunity below.
STEM Internships Available for Students
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the expected rate of growth for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) jobs between now and 2029 is 8%. While that may not seem like an exceedingly large figure, all other occupations are expected to see growth of roughly 3%. It's not surprising. As we continue to evolve technologically, we need more workers in these fields. Given the demand, it’s also not surprising that these college majors make the highest salaries after graduation. If you’re considering a career in a STEM field, it will be to your advantage to find and complete a STEM internship. Your internship will not only give you a glimpse of the career you’re interested in, but a look at how STEM will directly impact our progress and evolution as a society.
