High-tech industries in Maine need to do a better job of providing paid internships and other incentives for the state's science, technology, engineering and math students to encourage them to seek careers close to home, said Michael Dubyak, CEO of South Portland-based WEX. He said he hopes that Project Login, a campaign led by Educate Maine and the University of Maine System that aims to double the number of STEM graduates in the University of Maine System by 2016, will help. "There's a big problem with IT talent around the country," Dubyak said. "Demand is growing faster than supply."
