High-tech jobs that don't require a college degree
from 24/7 Wall St. via USA Today
When people think of high-tech jobs, they typically think of Silicon Valley entrepreneurs and Ivy League Ph.D.s. But according to a new definition of STEM jobs — those requiring skills in science, technology, engineering or math — half of all high-tech positions are held by employees without a bachelor's degree. A recent report by the Brookings Institution redefines STEM jobs to include those with a substantial base of technical knowledge, but not necessarily requiring a bachelor's degree. With this new perspective, high-tech jobs are not limited to advanced degrees and represent a larger part of the American middle class.
