Manufacturing Offers Many Career Opportunities

Manufacturers throughout Connecticut are busy producing new, state-of-the-art products. As their businesses have expanded, so has their need for qualified, skilled workers interested in making careers in the manufacturing industry. As many students and young employees are discovering, the days of dirty, dingy shops with antiquated equipment are over. People employed in the manufacturing sector are working with robotics and automation, computer-aided design, 3D printing and computer numerical control (CNC) machining in clean, modern facilities. Educational initiatives and training opportunities have never been more available and more accessible to obtain the skills needed to succeed.
