Manufacturing Day is fast approaching, and it not only reminds us of the amazing products produced in factories around the world, but it also highlights the many jobs available. This very special day provides an opportunity for manufacturing companies to open their doors to the public for a show and tell. It’s time to show the community what manufacturing is. What it looks like. What it contributes to our lives. It also gives manufacturing companies all over the country a chance to educate and inspire the next generation of manufacturers.

Job searchers and students should definitely take note and attend events when possible. Curious about events in your area? With over 900 events happening this year, you’re bound to find one near you. Check out Manufacturing Day’s nifty event finder:
