Given the rapid advancement and increasing reliance of technology, it’s no surprise careers related to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) are some of the most sought-after in the job market ... and among the fastest-growing.


Whether it be health care, engineering, or computer science, there is a growing need for trained, qualified, and certified professionals. The number of jobs in STEM fields will increase by nearly 11% from 2022 to 2032, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics projections -- almost five times the rate of growth for non-STEM career occupations.
Not sure you have what it takes to compete in a high-demand STEM profession? You may be underestimating your unique knowledge and abilities, or you may need to further develop those STEM-related attributes to enhance your competitiveness. Consider these three common STEM skills you can use to articulate your value:

  • Research: The ability to discover new information or find a more efficient and effective method for completing a task.
  • Problem-Solving: How you can analyze a situation, develop potential solutions, and then test to determine the best course of action to implement.
  • Teamwork: The ability to coordinate with others to finish a task or achieve a common goal -- something uniformed servicemembers and military spouses have mastered!

Want to learn more? Join MOAA for a panel discussion on how to enhance your professional development in your chosen STEM field, tackle unique challenges faced by the uniformed services community on getting established, and gain insights on achieving STEM success. Panelists include:

  • Jo Weech, HR Strategist and Talent Management professional  
  • Philip Hicks, Senior Project Manager, Dewberry
  • Brendan Curran, Senior Operations Analyst and Systems Engineer, Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory

Whether you are a transitioning servicemember, veteran, or military spouse, don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to explore the right STEM career fit and posture yourself for success across a full range of industries and sectors. Register today!
As an added bonus, be sure to register for the MOAA Virtual Career Fair and Hiring Event Featuring STEM Employment on June 5. Don't miss this unique opportunity to have a conversation with your potential future STEM employer.
