Manufacturers understand the importance of attracting the next generation of talent—people with the skills and attitudes necessary for innovation and success. Manufacturing careers offer good salaries and exciting opportunities that are on the cutting edge of new technologies and products. However, our industry is often misunderstood in the eyes of young people, as well as the parents and teachers who influence their career choices.
In recognition of this need, Tri-State Manufacturers' Association has launched the Dream It. Do It. Minnesota Manufacturing Career Dream Team.
Purpose: to change the public image of manufacturing in the West Central region and attract the next generation of manufacturing talent.
Job Description: Career Dream Team members are early-career employees who play a front-facing role in their community, representing the manufacturing industry. They represent the industry in the region’s schools and communities, sharing their real-life stories of success. They join a unique national network of professionals dedicated to engaging, educating, and employing today’s students in high-quality manufacturing jobs, while also educating career influencers like parents and educators. They bring forward a message of inspiration, passion, and drive to potential students as they make decisions about their future and what they want to do in life. Each Career Dream Team member has a unique education and career pathway, as well as a unique voice. Together, team members paint an exciting picture of the industry and the career opportunities it affords.
Currently, the Manufacturing Career Dream Team is ten-members strong.
Manufacturers who have a candidate for the program should contact Sandy Kashmark or 800-654-5773.
