How to get a York, PA Manufacturing Job

How to get a York, PA Manufacturing Job

York manufacturing jobs pay well, provide job security, and offer opportunity. For example, an aspiring machinist can start training at 18, do a one- or two-year manufacturing apprenticeship, and, in five years, he or she could be making more than $50,000. “In 10 years, that could double to $100,000,” writes Parija Kavilanz in the article “$100K Manufacturing Jobs” on CNN.Money.Com.   So the question is, why are so many York manufacturing jobs left unfilled? The answer: The average high school graduate is not qualified for an entry level position in manufacturing. Some of the skills high school graduates desperately need in order to land an entry level manufacturing job include: Mechanical skills, welding skills, electrical skills, shop skills, computer skills, measuring skills, and strong math and science skills. Often entry level manufacturing jobs require workers be able to operate, fix, and trouble shoot the machines they use. (Unfortunately, because many high schools have eliminated their shop programs, most graduates can’t identify simple tools!) In addition, soft skills such as critical thinking, communication, problem solving and creativity are equally important to employers. Clearly, the solution to this problem is training. There are job openings that can only be filled by trained employees. The good news is York County offers two places high school graduates can acquire the training they need. The York County School of Technology located at 2179 S Queen Street offers excellent adult education programs in forklift training, industrial controls and automation technology, welding technology, computer aided drafting and manufacturing technology, CAD/CAM manufacturing technology, and precision metal machining.
