If you are studying STEM and soon to graduate, you are in a high-risk category, please heed this advice. And here's my take based on personal experience:
There are large cashed up corporations running around at careers fairs and such crying out for STEM workers. They'll tell you about their plans for the new hotness, data science, AI, robots, the works.
The issue is, these are all just 'aspirations'.
They'll paint amazing pictures of their graduate programs and how they will have you working on this cutting edge stuff. But trust me, the reality will be turn out to be nothing but an absurd caricature.
