Eight Reasons It’s Great To Work In Manufacturing

In today’s fragile economy, job security has become supremely important. Whether you are starting over due to job loss as a result of the covid crisis, just starting out, or simply want to change careers, it is a very opportune time to work in manufacturing.

Let’s take a look at eight of them.

IT’S AN INDUSTRY IN HIGH DEMAND

Estimates as high as an increase of 3.5 million new skilled manufacturing jobs are on the horizon. This is due to:

  • The Baby Boomer generation phasing out into retirement
  • Manufacturing being brought back from overseas

NO NEED TO INCUR STUDENT LOAN DEBT

  • College degrees have become a huge expense with no guarantee of employment in that field of study
  • Manufacturing offers entry-level positions and apprenticeships in that field, almost guaranteeing a good job with longevity

THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE TECHNOLOGY’S CUTTING EDGE

  • Learn about the latest tech and be a part of moving America forward
  • Be an active part of improving industry standards of safety, quality, and productivity

ENJOY HIGHER WAGES AND BETTER BENEFITS

  • Manufacturing is an industry that has survived covid and the workforce demands that came with it
  • As the “backbone of America,” it’s considered an essential business

STAY ACTIVE AND HEALTHY

  • Sedentary desk jobs can lead to various health problems
  • Enjoy a job that keeps you moving and working with your hands
  • Collaborate with other essential workers

OPPORTUNITIES FOR ADVANCEMENT

  • Work your way up without taking time off and paying for continuing education
  • You can advance within one department or transfer to another to embrace new opportunities

TAKING PRIDE IN YOUR WORK

  • Today’s manufacturing jobs offer the satisfaction of creating something vital to many persons or industries while utilizing the latest technology
  • The opportunity to support the growth of the reshoring of manufacturing and subsequent economic growth of the United States

TAP INTO YOUR CREATIVE SIDE

  • Modern manufacturing jobs give you the opportunity to problem solve and find new and better ways of doing things
  • Manufacturing jobs support many different industries, which affords you the opportunity to marry a personal interest with your work.

It’s never been a better time for hardworking, blue-collar Americans to enter the manufacturing industry.

Every day Americans are being regifted with the opportunity to purchase high-quality, American-made products as a result.
