Careers in Manufacturing

Why Manufacturing?

There is a popular belief that manufacturing is dead, but that is definitely not true!

In the last four months there were 7,500 manufacturing job postings, and 1,500 production, maintenance, repair and installation jobs in the Chicago metro area.

However, many of these jobs go unfilled because the employers can’t find people with the right skills.

Manufacturers Are Looking for Good People With the Right Skills!
