From Housatonic Community College
On Wednesday, May 4, Housatonic Community College (HCC) invites job seekers to Careers In Manufacturing Expo 2022. The free event is an opportunity to discover in-demand manufacturing positions, learn about the industry, meet employers, and explore the HCC advanced manufacturing technology center. Refreshments provided, including catering from Taco Loco’s taco truck.
The Careers In Manufacturing Expo takes place from 11am – 4pm at HCC, and will kick off with a panel discussion entitled ‘What It’s Really Like; Career Paths.’ Tours of HCC’s Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center, exhibits by 28 manufacturing firms and a CEO Panel entitled “The Future of Manufacturing” will also be showcased.
“With hourly compensation 17% higher than in other industries, manufacturing careers are rewarding and well-paid,” said HCC Professor Adam Scobie. “Graduates of HCC’s 9-month program work with CNCs, lasers, semi-conductors and more. It’s very exciting.”
Today there is a shortage of skilled labor in the manufacturing industry. By 2025 it is estimated that U.S. manufacturers will have 2 million jobs open due to a skills gap.
