Jobs that will go begging
The upshot? Could be job security.
Here's an example from Debra Auerbach's story: In 2014, 1157,591 people graduated with degrees in computer science and information sciences. From Jan 2015-Jan 2016, 689,685 jobs were posted in these fields each month. But the average number of hires was 209,035 a month--leaving 480,650 positions open.
STEM (science tech engineering math) fields are affected, but they aren't the only ones.
Gaps between openings and those who can fill them occur in:
Pharmacy and pharmaceuticals
Electrical and electronic engineering
Biology, general health info/med records
Almost half of employers think students just don't know this.

And might WANT you.
Graphic design--I was surprised to see that one...I have worked with many designers...Fun field.
