College Recruiter helping to increase number of young women in STEM careers

Saint Paul, MN (February 5, 2014) – Economists anticipate that within six years there will be 1.4 million job openings for computer specialists. A potential source for these jobs are graduates of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programs at American colleges and universities. Yet these schools graduate only about 400,000 STEM majors per year. One possibility for helping to greatly increase the number of grads is to increase the number of people entering the programs. There are a number of possible ways to accomplish that goal, but one of the most appealing is to encourage young women to enter the traditionally male dominated STEM fields.

Despite holding six in 10 American jobs, women held just 26 percent of computing occupations in 2012. Advance IT Minnesota launched the Minnesota Aspirations for Women in Computing awards program to help bridge this gender and talent gap, and support, recognize and encourage young women in high school interested in computing and technology. To offer the award, Advance IT Minnesota partnered with College Recruiter along with a number of other Minnesota organizations including Cargill, ESP-IT, General Mills, Marco, Maverick Software Consulting, Microsoft, The Nerdery, Pearson, PeopleNet, Securian, Sport Ngin, Symantec, TC Chapter of the Association of Women in Computing, Thomson Reuters, Unisys, Upper Midwest Security Alliance (UMSA) and ViaWest.
