"STEM in New Hampshire: A Labor Supply-Demand Analysis"

Presenter: Katrina Evans
Assistant Director of the Economic and Labor Market Information Bureau, New Hampshire Employment Security

There has been heightened interest, both in New Hampshire and nationally, in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, or STEM. Businesses are concerned that their demand for qualified workers in STEM occupations might be unmet by those completing programs at the state’s educational institutions. At the same time, students in STEM-related programs are concerned about obtaining employment after graduation. Is demand driven by an abundant supply of labor with STEM skills or are individuals pursuing STEM careers because demand is growing? STEM in New Hampshire is an effort to inform this labor market discussion.

Katrina Evans is the Assistant Director of the Economic and Labor Market Information Bureau of New Hampshire Employment Security. She has been with the Bureau for 17 years, serving primarily as the Workforce Information Database administrator and coordinator of One-Stop Labor Market Information activities. She has over 25 years of experience in the field of career and labor market information.
