STEM education can help set students up for CNNMoney/PayScale’s #1 Best Job in America. The new top 100 list ranks mobile app development No. 1 for big growth, great pay, and satisfying work. Mobile app development received an A in personal satisfaction from CNNMoney/PayScale and lists a 19% job growth.
“Mobile app developers get to create something that can reach millions of people on a daily basis. That means growing demand for developers who build and update apps so they’re secure, user-friendly, and sought after,” CNNMoney/PayScale said.
Programs like the Lenovo Scholar Network Mobile App Development Competition, a partnership between Lenovo, NAF, and MIT App Inventor, create a more robust talent pipeline.
