A career in manufacturing is much more than just a job. The modern manufacturing floor is leaps and bounds from the manufacturing floor of the 70s and 80s. It’s buzzing with innovation, technology and automation. It’s the home of Advanced Manufacturing.
Unfortunately, many of today’s manufacturing jobs are going unfilled due to a large skills gap. Older workers are growing close to retirement, and today’s high school graduates have their eyes on four-year degrees. Economists note the growing tradespeople shortage as the middle skills gap. Manufacturers are seeing this gap as a huge opportunity to be a training ground for great industry jobs!
Did you know there are 30 million jobs in the United States that offer quality pay with benefits that do not require a bachelor’s degree? Three million (and growing) of those jobs are going unfilled each year, while more and more students leave college with mountains of student loan debt and no position within their field of study in sight.
Just like Mike Rowe notes, a four-year degree is not the only path to success. Why not take a step today on a path where jobs exist in abundance, lessen the middle skills gap and challenge the persistent belief that a four-year degree is the path for all? Go ahead be the trailblazer you know is inside you.
