To inform the public about manufacturing careers available in the Oh-Penn region (Columbiana, Mahoning and Trumbull counties in Ohio and Lawrence and Mercer counties in Pennsylvania), Introduction to Manufacturing Workshops are presented by the Career Coaches in each Ohio county and Manufacturing Careers NOW! workshops are presented by the Career Coaches in Pennsylvania.
The workshops are geared towards those who have limited manufacturing background, but are also helpful for those who have worked in manufacturing in the past, but have no recent experience.
The Career Coaches cover topics ranging from the difference in working conditions to the possible wages that can be earned with experience and hard work. At the conclusion of the workshop, Career Coaches meet one-on-one with the attendees, or schedule a date and time, for a more in-depth session to determine the extent of the jobseeker’s skills and interest.
If you know anyone who is interested in manufacturing or who would simply like to learn more about the opportunities available, please spread the word about the workshops.
