Pursue your passion in science, technology, engineering, or math and find a job where you can #DoWhatYouLove.
STEM Jobs connects today’s students with the in-demand careers of tomorrow in science, technology, engineering and math. We provide comprehensive solutions for teachers to help their pupils realize that STEM exists in everything, particularly in the sports, tech, entertainment and music they consume daily.
As thought leaders in the classroom, STEM Jobs is constantly working to change the classroom culture and address the widespread issues of under-representation for minority and female students in STEM careers. By providing positive role models and answering the question of, “When will I ever use this?”, STEM Jobs can help students do what they love.
We provide answers to the tough questions that keep students away from careers in STEM.
When am I going to use this? Did you know that illustrators use algebra? Or that video game designers use trigonometry? The classes you are in directly relate to careers in STEM.
Is there a place for me? We want minority and female students to discover their place in STEM: so, we highlight real, diverse professionals in different STEM industries to provide role models and broaden the horizons of today’s students.
How do I get there? We path out the different educational routes available to connect students with a STEM career they’ll love, including two and four year degree-granting schools and certification programs.
How do I get there? We want you to #dowhatyoulove, so we align your passions with exciting career paths via our powerful STEM Type assessment.

“Just read the Early Fall edition – loved it – so much information and so user friendly!”
Carol Wooten, EdD, Education Consultant, Consultant Schools That Can Pittsburgh
As a science teacher I am somewhat limited in my knowledge of STEM jobs and applications. Obviously I used my science education to pursue teaching science. My strengths in the science fields pertain to content knowledge and delivery. It truly can be hard explaining to students the amazing world of STEM that is out there professionally. A student may love my class but sometimes that is not enough to get them hooked and on the career path for STEM.
One rough year in high school could completely throw them off that course! The STEM Jobs magazine has really helped me make meaningful career connections with my students and STEM fields. The article showing mean salaries, descriptions, education necessary, and companies hiring in that field was extraordinarily powerful when motivating students to pursue college in science or engineering majors.
The STEM Jobs magazine has allowed my students to access information that I don’t know and to be motivated to pursue STEM on an entirely new and realistic level! They are even starting to do their own research and come in and tell me about the job they found that is using what we are learning in class
