Why Manufacturing is a Good Career Choice
There is a skills shortage currently facing the manufacturing industry caused by an ageing workforce and difficulties in attracting young workers.
Some of this difficulty is due to outdated and skewed perceptions of a career in manufacturing.
The manufacturing landscape is not the same as it once was; when loud, dirty, repetitive assembly lines were the norm.
A career in manufacturing today is far more rewarding and yields far better opportunities.
At Fascia Graphics® where we manufacture membrane keyboards, graphic overlays and screen printed labels, we have a high employee retention rate. Our employees are encouraged to grow and progress through rewarding careers, in some instances rising from the shop floor to senior management.
Here are just 4 reasons why there has never been a better time to pursue a career in manufacturing.
With the current skills shortage, there is an abundance of opportunities for work in manufacturing. And once you have a ‘step’ in the door there is plenty of opportunity for you to grow and progress. The workforce is ageing, and the demand for skilled workers is increasing. There has never been a better time to start a career in manufacturing.
There is an ever increasing partnership forming between manufacturers and schools and colleges. This partnership brings students the opportunity to work and gain a nationally recognised qualification at the same time. It provides students with a great opportunity to earn a wage, receive an education and pursue an career all at the same time, all without the heavy tuition fees that further education brings.
Unlike some jobs, in manufacturing you’re not stuck sitting at a desk all day, you are up and about using your head and hands. You are figuring out ways in which you can make products better, lighter, faster, more precise. You are being innovative and can get to see an idea go from a concept into reality.
Forget the misguided notion that manufacturing is repetitive and boring. The reality is that manufacturing offers plenty of challenges and opportunities to use innovative advanced technology, for example automation and 3D printing. Also, new technology is being developed all the time.
