Home / STEM Workers Need Continuing Education to Keep Pace in the Job Market


Manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler, recently wrote about the shifting economic landscape and how it is reshaping the way people think about the skills and training they need to get ahead for AutomationMedia.com.

Cutler highlights a new report by the Pew Center shows that American workers – especially those with college degrees and/or those working in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields – know they need continuing education training to keep pace in the job market. Overall, the survey findings and employment data show how Americans are hustling to adapt to new labor force realities.

As more working adults realize they need new and ongoing job skill training, workers will flock to both formal education settings as well as newer, faster technology education; the learning community for robotics, technology computer, web development, and data science skills is growing quickly across the country.
