Why is it called STEM when science degrees don't actually get you a job?

They do though, you just need more than a bachelors to become strong in it. And what does stem have to do with jobs?
>>
Because it stands for "Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics"

>>51425233
>They do though
They don't. You'll be lucky to get a temporary position and probably won't have a tenure until you're like 40-50.
>>
Daily reminder that the stem meme is the root of all problems. Jobs don't grow on trees. Plant.
>>
You're right, it should be TEA instead

Tech == Engineering > Fine arts > science >>>> Liburl arts > medicine

People who draw anime get paid scraps, have massive workloads and don't get to choose what they're drawing.

In terms of work/pay ratio scientists are easily at the bottom. They need a PhD to get into anything and even then they're underappreciated and underpaid.

I pretty much got rejected at each and every one. They said they wanted better people but never said what was wrong with me.

They probably thought you were socially retarded.

I wish they would at least tell me that even if they had to sugarcoat it.

What the fuck does the name acronym have to do with having a job??

There's a program at our university trying to push STEAM as a opposed to STEM

The 'A' stands for Arts.

This kind of shit really pisses me off about university. Why does everything have to be so inclusive? Monoculture is not the solution to everything. Arts degrees just don't have demand in the market.

homelessness STEMS from it, get it?

STEAM contains at least some hot air, so it's quite a fitting acronym.

Arts doesn't have jack shit to do with science mathematics technology or engineering.

It's coddling arts students becuase they're special snowflakes. The fact of the matter is we need more people in STEM fields.

the T and E are the only ones to choose if you're in it for the money
