Unfilled STEM jobs at the beginning of 2018.
In 2018, employers struggled to find qualified candidates for their critical STEM positions. At the beginning of 2018, the United States had 1.2 million unfilled STEM jobs, according to Career Explorer. This is largely due to the fact that nearly 40 percent of students enrolled in STEM majors fail to earn their degree or switch majors entirely. And this disparity is only going to get worse this year.
