Picture a scientist in a white lab coat holding a test tube up to the light. Or a brilliant computer geek hunched over a keyboard. These are stereotypes we associate with STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. But there are a lot of industries involving STEM skills that don’t fit those stereotypes.

Engineering is one of today's few fields with a good job market. But the long, hard degree requirements are daunting. The good news is that more than a few successful engineers, or at least people who do engineering, don't have a degree. On the Oct. 28, 2012 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I'll talk with three of them.

And as usual, you can call in for a three-minute career makeover, a WorkOver.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard Sundays from 11 am to noon on 91.7 FM, KALW, San Francisco.
