As some of you may know, Manufacturing Day is on October 1, and it kicks off Manufacturing Month (October). Manufacturing is a highly critical industry, and it is more widespread than you think. Manufacturing is looking towards the next generation of workers for help, and Manufacturing Day was established nationally to teach the next generation about the workforce and the many, many avenues one can take. According to the Manufacturing Institute, companies currently have 900,000 open jobs nationwide, and that will go up to 4 million by the end of the decade. The establishment of Manufacturing Month has helped with this, and the CCEDC works hard to honor the manufacturing industry in the Chippewa Valley not only during October, but all year.

If you live in the Chippewa Valley and you are either looking for a job or are a company looking for employees, the CCEDC and Workforce Resource are here to help. On October 28, 2021 from 2-6 pm, join us at the Americas Best Value Inn (formerly the Avalon Hotel) for a job fair, because searching for jobs shouldn’t be frightening! Never a trick, always a treat.
