Which college degrees are in the most, least demand? - GREG HINZ, Crain's Chicago

"While it's encouraging to see accelerated growth in STEM-related college programs, the slowdown in overall degree completions—especially those tied to developing strong communications and critical-thinking skills—is concerning," said CareerBuilder CEO Matt Ferguson. His reference was to the fact that while the number of new degrees grew a healthy 6.9 percent in 2011 compared with 2010, the year-to-year hike in 2014 was just 0.8 percent. "Nearly half of employers say they currently have job vacancies but can't find skilled candidates to fill them," Ferguson added. "We need to do a better job informing students and workers about which fields are in demand and growing."
