Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) innovation is critical to our economy, our planet and our future. Are you ready?

Rapid changes in the environment, climate, artificial intelligence, cyber and communications demand workers skilled in critical thinking. The U.S. military provides training and advanced education for their service members to develop cutting edge solutions to complex problems.

Career counselors from the Navy, Marines, Army, Coast Guard, California National Guard and civilian agencies can discuss STEM-related job opportunities with you.
