Manufacturing Day is the celebration of modern manufacturing and is meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. The manufacturing industry is on an upward growth trajectory, fueled by a strong economy and steady demand for consumer and industrial products.

  • Trends in manufacturing and how they’re affecting the current hiring landscape
  • Tips for creating an agile and responsive strategy to maintain full employment

“With $6.2 trillion in annual revenue, manufacturing continues to be a major driver of economic growth in the U.S.,” said Nathan Coin, Aerotek Director of Divisional Operations. “Although manufacturers are facing the toughest recruitment environment in decades ―a shallow labor pool and competitive talent market due to the historically low unemployment rate.“
