Making Your Future just got easier for manufacturing employers to attract job seekers and keep good employees. This allows these companies to fill open positions and take advantage of the growth opportunities.

The top concern of manufacturing companies in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio is finding skilled workers to fill current and future open positions. The aging workforce will make this need even greater over the next ten years. A great resource for this new workforce are makers. The term, maker, refers to anyone who likes to create something new. Makers enjoy working with their hands and solving problems. That drive within a person to make often aligns with a career in manufacturing.
