Look for Manufacturing Jobs
The TAPPI conference comes on the heels of the Oct. 1 observance of MFG Day — NAM’s annual opportunity to inspire the next generation about modern manufacturing jobs. Over the next decade, 4 million manufacturing jobs will need to be filled in the United States, according to the National Association of Manufacturers.
Since 2012, Manufacturing Day has helped students discover financially rewarding job opportunities by giving the future workforce the tools they need to kickstart their career.
If you’re a hands-on learner who likes being part of a team without having to work at a desk, a manufacturing job might be perfect for you. Experience in manufacturing looks great on a resume, and the opportunities for long-term growth are plentiful.
“At Domtar, the complexity of our mill network offers a wide range of opportunities that can set entry-level employees up for long-term success,” Mehlberg says. “Knowing they are playing an important role in creating products people use every day while also having a direct impact on Domtar’s bottom line success is a big point of pride for our employees.”
