Will the Tech Industry save the world from the global unemployment crisis?
What began a crisis of the financial markets in the USA some years ago, has become today a global economic crisis, striking at its very core the labour market, in both advanced and developing countries, provoking unprecedented social challenges worldwide. But if we just take a glance at the science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields, we witness a completely different reality: unemployment has trended at about half the average, around 4% in the US for example, which is considered full employment . Numerous job positions opened, in the industry giants, but also in small companies and start-ups, show another type of problems: lack of qualified candidates and the urgent need to invest in education and project-based learning .
The imperatives of the so called STEM (Science Technology, Engineering and Maths) sector are the constant innovation, continuous learning and improvement, and the harness of entrepreneurship. The possibilities are numerous, as the recent analysis show, STEM sector will create 1 in 4 new jobs until 2017, higher salaries and better job prospects than all other graduates .
