No surprise that manufacturing makes this list.

MarketWatch posted an online slide show about where the jobs are today.

Here’s the link. Industries can’t find workers fast enough.

  • Accommodation and Food Service (lower pay according to the article)
  • Educational Services (highly variable pay according to the article)
  • Manufacturing (average pay $19.60 per hour – “not great” according to the article. Not great? What are you making?)
  • Mining and Logging (decent pay at $27 for nonsupervisory employees)
  • Transportation, Warehousing and Utilities (Pay pretty low at $21.50 per hour according to Market Watch. What do you think?)
  • Wholesale and retail trade (non-supervisory pay average $14.50)

Our precision machining shops are a subset of advanced manufacturing and almost every CEO that I have spoken with said that they have immediate openings for people with skills. A short course in CNC machining or CAD-CAM could be your ticket to a great career. While I have seen some courses only 16 weeks long I am a big fan of the 1-year certificate program at Lorain County Community College.

NIMS credentials are a big plus in any program you might consider.
