If you’re considering jumping into an #ITjob, you definitely need a passion for #learning. You have to be willing to pursue #knowledge and you should probably set aside time in your daily routine to train. For most #ITpros, learning and #professionaldevelopment will likely have its place outside of your normal 9-to-5 responsibilities. Some examples are: #Studying for a #certification, taking #college#courses#online, or #reading a book, among a number of other #training options. All of these activities require you take time away from family and fun in the pursuit of #professional#development. This tithe of time is a deposit into your professional #success bank account. It will take time for your #investment to mature and pay off, but it most definitely will, if you persevere. Fortunately, you can take many different avenues and approaches when getting started in the world of #ITcareers. Learn how to find your spot at cbtnuggets.com/blog (link in our bio)!

5 Latino role models for students in STEM
There are plenty of role models for Latinos interested in STEM, here are just a few.

According to a report compiled by Pew Research Center, one in every five students in America is now of Hispanic descent. By 2050 it is predicted that Hispanics will make up more than half of all students found in the United States public school system and comprise 74 percent of the workforce.
At the same time, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economics and Statistics Administration (ESA) recently released a report showing that: “Over the past 10 years, growth in STEM jobs was three times greater than that of non-STEM jobs, and STEM jobs are expected to continue to grow at a faster rate than other jobs in the coming decade. Meanwhile, STEM workers are also less likely to experience joblessness.” Taking these two sets of statistics into account, it is clear that America needs to invest in STEM education for the Hispanic youth of the nation if it is to maintain a competitive edge in the global market.
Though most Americans have knowledge of Einstein, Edison, Armstrong and other Caucasian STEM role models, how many people have the ability to name equivalent role models of Hispanic descent?
Unfortunately, for most Americans, we draw a blank. The fact, however, still remains; Hispanic students need STEM role models to look to if we are to increase the number of Hispanic students entering the STEM fields.
#MarioMolina—1995 Chemistry Nobel Prize Winner
Born in 1943 in Mexico City, where he grew up and attended elementary and high school. From the time he was young, Molina always had a passion for math and science and even converted a bathroom in his family’s home into a lab to play with his chemistry set.
Molina’s aunt was a chemist and helped him with more challenging experiments till he was completing work most people never consider before college. In 1960, Molina enrolled in the chemical engineering program at UNAM.
He then went on to complete his graduate and Ph.D. program at Berkeley in California. Molina is known for his Nobel Prize
