My favorite line:
Pursuing a career in STEM has become little different from pursing a career in professional sports. It can be exciting and highly rewarding if you have the talent and are willing to work hard, and have a bit of luck in which major you choose and company you start off with. Graduating at the start of an economic boom also helps.The IEEE Spectrum's editorial board's opposition to H1B is well known, but the opposition to recruiting more members in to STEM profession is news to me. Maybe they want a board certified systems like the medical practice, so that they can make the STEM crisis real and secure their jobs?
Just glance the titles they pick.
1.Is a Career in STEM Really for Me?
Career choice is totally personal, and monetary incentive is only one of many factors. The STEM crisis is a macro problem, and career choice is micro.
2. Is There a U.S. IT Worker Shortage?
Globalization! If workers can not immigrate/emigrate, the jobs will.
3. An Engineering Career: Only a Young Person’s Game?
Admit it, most professional jobs are young person's game. Just check the ages when Nobel achievements were made. When our ancestors lived in caves, life is a young person's game.
4. What Ever Happened to STEM Job Security?
Give me a break, who has job security?
5. Are STEM Workers Overpaid? - Lowering STEM worker pay seems to be hidden agenda of many tech companies
Lowering workers is the open agenda of the employers. It is called capitalism!
It seems to me, those who are not willing accept changes are trying to voice their fear!
