Careers in Manufacturing: A Conversation With Area Students (Video)

December 16th, 2013

The lack of young people entering careers in manufacturing has been identified by the industry as their #1 workforce challenge.

As part of our ongoing effort to address the workforce needs of regional manufacturers, Worksystems participated on a panel with the Oregon Manufacturing Extension Partnership, ImpactNW, educators and local companies to discuss manufacturing career opportunities with area students with the goal of changing their perception of the industry. Young people heard about the large volume of job openings and high wages offered by the industry and had the opportunity to ask questions.
