TRMA is planning its fifth MFG DAY event, on October 9, 2018, to attract high school students to consider careers in manufacturing and its related industries by highlighting manufacturers’ strong values, its diversity of opportunities AND by demonstrating itself as a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) based industry. Attracting the needed skilled manufacturing workforce is a challenge that requires innovative revamped recruiting strategies. MFG DAY is an organized outreach and public relations best practice technique to build a future workforce and creatively approaches tackling the rising skills gap.
TRMA with partner, Joliet Junior College, will be hosting the October 9th event at the JJC Event Center on Main Campus, from 9 am to 1:30 pm. Our goal is to reach 700-750 high school students and educators from Will and Grundy counties.
