Does success in a high-tech industry require four years of college? Are jobs involving math, computers, and science available for everyone? Many students don’t realize the opportunities available by following a vocational STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) career track. This four-part series shows that rewarding, well-paid jobs in several STEM industries are attainable with only two years of training. Each episode features three case studies, all focusing on employees who were hired after completing associate’s degrees, certifications, or apprenticeships.
