How do I prepare my students for STEM jobs?
How do I prepare my students for STEM jobs? My students are interested in technology, engineering, and other fields. Can you suggest ways to prepare them for these jobs?
That is an excellent question. There is definitely strong demand for STEM jobs, but we also need to prepare students for what we refer to as digitalization. Our rapidly changing digital world requires new skills, including new ways to interact with other people (soft skills). Here are some resources to get you started:
