WalletHub
Technological innovation is often used as a measure of progress. And though America has historically produced one of the best scorecards in the world, competition is fiercer than ever. But don't expect the U.S. to relinquish its position anytime soon. According to Department of Commerce estimates, STEM — science, technology, engineering and math — professions will expand 1.7 times faster than non-STEM occupations between 2008 and 2018.

The importance of women in science — STEM programs and higher education
The Houston Chronicle
Across the nation, jobs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics can be found in droves. From engineers in the oil fields, to software developers at burgeoning technology companies, to forensic accountants at international accounting firms, career opportunities in STEM-related fields abound. However, to remain competitive in this field, it is essential for women to see themselves as leaders in STEM — to actively engage in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Here's why every job seeker needs a personal website — and what it should include
