This paper examines how the STEM job market experience of immigrants in the US has changed between 1993 and 2010 by looking at salary and job satisfaction. Using the data from the National Recent Graduates Survey, I conclude that the wage gap between citizens and immigrants has decreased through the years. My studies show that the highest education and gender are important determinants of the wage gap. Despite the wage gap, job satisfaction does not differ significantly between citizens and immigrants.
