INDUSTRY NEWS


Are STEM graduates really having trouble finding jobs?
Governing
Policymakers have focused much attention in recent years on increasing the number of workers with training in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. While this group makes up a relatively small share of the nation’s workforce, many policy analysts view them as a key component to improving the economy. In 2005 a coalition of groups issued a study stating U.S. higher education institutions needed to double the number of STEM graduates.

Want to impress? Don't do this
Entrepreneur
Whether you’re new to the business world or just misguided, here's a little secret. It’s a common pitfall to think that everyone you meet or connect with thinks the way you do. This may come as a shock but, in all likelihood, most don’t — especially not the important ones. Take those in a position to hire you or fund your business, for example. There’s a very good chance they are more experienced and accomplished, perhaps even more conservative and discerning than you are. They may not have even read “Me 2.0” or a Tim Ferriss book, if you can believe that.

Inside the complicated mess of discrimination and diversity in hiring
Fast Company
A spate of recent studies delivered some troubling findings related to how race, religion, sexual orientation, and even your name can determine whether you get that call for an interview or job offer. A recent study by the Equal Rights Center (ERC) and Freedom to Work (FTW) found that fictitious applicants’ resumes which included a leadership role in an LGBT organization were 23 percent less likely to be called back for interviews.

The biggest mistakes 20-something job seekers make
Forbes
There was the young job seeker who showed up at his interview 15 minutes late, failed to apologize, and then asked if the interviewer had a garbage can so he could throw away his gum. There was also the 20-something applicant whose call to the hiring manager went dead in the middle of the conversation. The young woman didn’t call back for two hours, only to explain, without apology, that she had dropped her phone in a tub of water while she was getting a manicure. Then there was the mother who called her son’s boss when he wasn’t hired at the end of his internship, and demanded to know why.

Depleted uranium could turn carbon dioxide into valuable chemicals
Scientific American
European scientists have synthesised uranium complexes that take them a step closer to producing commodity chemicals from carbon dioxide. Widespread fossil fuel depletion and concerns over levels of climatic carbon dioxide are motivating research to convert this small molecule into value-added chemicals. Organometallic uranium complexes have successfully activated various small molecules before. However, there were no reports of an actinide metal complex that could reductively couple with carbon dioxide to give a segment made from two carbon dioxide molecules — an oxalate dianion.

Universities across the world are addressing the gender gap in the science and technology fields by creating programs geared specifically toward women. Many successful female leaders in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) became interested in the field in their primary school science classes, and they developed their passions into careers later in life.

The Huffington Post
Valuing diversity is apparently frowned upon in Corporate America — unless you’re a white man. Women and minorities who promote diversity from corporate leadership positions tend to get lower evaluations from their bosses and colleagues, according to a new study by researchers at the University of Colorado and University of Texas.

STEM education matters to our national security, innovation and world leadership
The Huffington Post
Over the last 230 years, the United States became a global leader, in large part, through the genius and hard work of its scientists, engineers and innovators. Today, a little over four percent of the workforce is employed directly in science, engineering and technology. Yet, this small group of workers is critical to economic innovation and productivity.
