STREAM fields are the largest job growth segment in the 21st century. STREAM-related jobs have increased by 14% since 2010. This is 5–8% higher on average than other job sectors. After 2020, 48% of jobs will require higher levels of cognitive skills such as active listening, communications, analytics, and collaboration. At this moment there is a shortage of skilled workers to fill those positions, and that shortage is making it difficult for our country to stay competitive in the global market.
