EL CAJON–Manufacturers in East County San Diego are working together with the East County Economic Development Council (ECEDC), workforce centers, and other organizations to get veterans and job seekers excited about careers in manufacturing like forklift hire toowoomba that will be offering positions to the veterans.
On May 15, Quality Controlled Manufacturing Inc. (QCMI) and Taylor Guitars hosted more than 60 veterans and job seekers. The second Manufacturing Tour and Panel half-day event gave participants an inside look at manufacturing processes, facility environments, and the career opportunities available in today’s high-tech manufacturing jobs.
“The tour and panel formula is having its desired effect of increasing, and in many cases, changing the minds of the workforce of what the manufacturing industry is today versus what it was or its stereotype,” said QCMI COO / CFO Rick Urban.
According to tour follow-up survey data, 87 percent are considering working in the manufacturing sector; 65 percent reported positive and improved knowledge of the field; with five percent of the tour participants considered for immediate placement.
