Skills Employers Need From IT Candidates
It doesn’t matter if executives want to bring on a technical co-founder or a chief information officer who will be onsite or if they wish to outsource their programming tasks, the issue is the same: “How do you know if a developer is any good if you don’t know how to write code?” Companies have to figure out the complexity level of their undertaking.

Robots Designed To Help, Not Replace, Workers
A new generation of low-cost robots handles short runs in tight quarters. With so much attention focused on driverless cars, package-delivering drones, and scrambling, stomping, and slithering automatons, industrial robots remain mechatronics’ blue collar guys. They work several shifts each day, no complaints, doing the same repetitive job quickly and accurately. Universal Robots is one of several firms developing robots for this emerging market.

Bridging The STEM Jobs Skills Gap
There will be a dramatic shortage of job seekers for new career opportunities being created in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) professions in the coming years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The House of Representatives passed the STEM Jobs Act (H.R. 6429) in December, a program designed to offer more than 50,000 green cards to migratory technological workers with a doctorate or Master’s degree from an accredited American university in a STEM discipline.
