Teaching Educators and Kids about Opportunities
It’s rewarding to watch people grow and succeed in your
organization. We’re fortunate to have some highly engaged young people
on our professional welding team coming right out of high school,
learning new trade skills as they go. We have great career positions
open for young people, and as a manufacturer, we a far from alone!
TEACHING EDUCATORS ABOUT CAREERS IN MANUFACTURING
Higher education comes in many different forms and in some cases, it
pays you while you receive it!
Technical vocational careers open worlds of opportunities to all kinds
of people, most often at an early age. These jobs provide
organizational experience and a lucrative financial head start over
other professional career paths that put people in a deep debt hole
coming out of college. So why aren’t parents, teachers and
young people more aware of the highly rewarding career paths in making
and building useful things, i.e. manufacturing?
We need to challenge the conventional wisdom of getting a 4-year
college degree or higher before entering the full-time workforce as
the best path. Educators often tend to push more education as the best
career-building solution but that simply does not work for many kids
and in some cases sets them back financially as well as
Young people who choose continuing education over “higher education” are living productive and happy lives. You can learn more about this and see a fine example of what we’re talking about by clicking to read the short & sweet article.
