Smart Futures has launched it's new website to help people explore exciting career opportunities in STEM.STEM stands for the disciplines Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. It's about concepts and ideas and has real world applications.
The huge number of available jobs in Ireland means that there are opportunities like never before for anyone interested in working in STEM. Changing technology needs mean these opportunities will continue to grow.
STEM is much more than a list of subjects. Studying STEM subjects at school or at third level, is about learning new ways to think and creatively find solutions to problems.
People working in science, tech, engineering and with maths, come from different backgrounds and have different interests. There is one common trait in all people working in these areas – they are curious.
People with backgrounds in STEM work in all kinds of industries, from pharmaceuticals to financial services and research in areas such as sport, food and space.
To coincide with the website launch we are also running a competition. If you see our new posters out and about at bus shelters, in shopping centres or on billboards etc. you can take a picture and tag us in it on social media – Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. You must state the location and use the #IGetPaidToDoThis to be in with a chance to win a €100 One 4 All voucher!
