Friday, Oct. 2, is MFG Day and October is MFG Month. This is the best opportunity of the year for Ohio manufacturers to connect with the next generation — even during COVID-19. Research shows that 84% of students who see manufacturing up close are more likely to think positively about the industry.
Here are resources from the National Association of Manufacturers and the Manufacturing Institute to help you organize and promote your MFG Day/Month event. Be sure to register your event on the official MFG Day website so the Buckeye State is well represented.
In your outreach to young people and career switchers, don’t forget to share the resources at MakingOhio.com. The site features an interactive career pathways section, as well as updated job categories and job descriptions — complete with estimated salaries and education requirements. 9/24/2020
