There’s a common misperception that industrial careers, especially in manufacturing, are dirty, repetitive and slow to change. Outdated images of factories and workers performing laborious jobs haven’t helped to dissuade public opinion.
So we are pleased to share Careers in Industrial Automation, a free new resource guide to prove that those perceptions are wrong.
Our objective is to take some of the stigma away about careers in manufacturing and to show all of the amazing opportunities available in the industrial automation sector for both students and workers looking to transition to new careers. We’ve started with an Ontario edition this year, and plan to expand to other provinces in the future.
Automation in an Industry 4.0 context is a new frontier – if you are tech-savvy or good with your hands, you’ll find that roles are being created faster than they are being filled.
The pandemic may have created a temporary hiring pause in many areas of manufacturing, but it’s also a good time to take stock of next steps.
If you or someone you know are interested in the industry, or if you’re interested in a tech-focused career, check out this FREE e-book!
