Jobs requiring science, technology, engineering or math skills take longer to fill

Jobs that require STEM skills were advertised about twice as long nationally as other jobs last year, a new Brookings analysis says. It says STEM hiring difficulty affects blue-collar jobs as well as highly educated positions. In Kansas City, 42 percent of job ads in one 2013 quarter required a science, technology, engineering or math skill, and 32 percent required at least a bachelor's degree.
