Texas Economic Development Council Webinar - Manufacturing is Not Dead

After decades of job loss and a struggling reputation, manufacturing has made a comback in the United States. Since the recession, production jobs have increased - and so have the knowledge and skill requirements. After analyzing hundreds of thousands of job postings, we observed that manufacturers need multi-functional engineering technicians possessing both traditional manufacturing and engineering skills.

 

The required technical skills yield competitive wages and also transfer well to other in-demand industries such as a finance, professional services, and health care. In this webinar, we'll discuss the demand for production jobs since the recession in Texas and the U.S., summarize the top skills inclulded in job postings, and explain the compensation and transferability for these skills.
