Welcome to manufacturing, where robots rule and computer skills and specialized training are as much a part of the job as hard hats and safety glasses. Modern manufacturing is all about merging factory machines and production with technology. Because of an aging workforce and changing nature of currently open positions, manufacturers have a high demand for skilled workers. Although some more traditional positions in manufacturing are expected to decline, many positions are expected to grow significantly over the next few years and will offer multiple opportunities for advancement.
If you like to master machines, develop and analyze processes, design and test products, or manage the distribution of finished goods, then a career in manufacturing promises a rewarding future.
