I ran across this document today and even though it is from 2015, it is worth a look! “Occupations with Bright Outlooks in Tennessee’s Job Markets.”
The Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development provided this document. Of note is the STEM-designated jobs. Quickly access them by clicking links in the table of contents!
While searching out engineering companies near my town of Johnson City, TN, so that I could find a female engineer to “job shadow” for a day, I discovered that Eastman Chemical Company isn’t the only “big” company to host engineering jobs in the tri-cities area. Check out Moog, Inc., and Aerojet Rocketdyne. I’m excited about these companies because my son is graduating from Drexel University this June as an engineer. He is looking at Huntsville, AL, for a job, but I just let him know what’s available near me! I’d love to have him and his family live nearby!!
