Employers: Be part of Manufacturing Day 2016!
Are you an advanced manufacturing employer who would like to share the innovative work that you are involved with, and career possibilities, with the next generation of workers?
We invite you to be part of Manufacturing Day 2016 in Hamilton, a career fair day which will take place near the end of October.
Advanced manufacturing in Hamilton in alive and well, and the workforce skills needed in this sector are vastly different from the skills sought in the past.
Manufacturing Day is a way to let youth and other job seekers know that manufacturing is a viable career choice, and that highly skilled workers are in demand.
The day started in the United States four years ago, and last year 2,600 events took place in the U.S. and Canada, involving 400,000 participants.
Workforce Planning Hamilton, with partners City of Hamilton, Economic Development Department, and many others, are looking forward to introducing middle and high school students, post-secondary students, and adult job seekers to the types of careers available in advanced manufacturing.
Our advisory committee is in the planning stages for the day and we would like to hear from employers in advanced manufacturing who would like an opportunity to attend the event, provide interactive displays, and speak to youth and adult job seekers.
Please contact Cyndi Ingle at 905-521-5777 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how you can be involved.
Together we can inspire youth, and grow the advanced manufacturing sector in Hamilton!
