Demand For Advanced Manufacturing Workers Continues to Rise in Q3

Advanced manufacturing employment demand continued to rise in the 3rd Quarter of 2018 across Midwest states according to a report recently issued by LIFT.

The quarterly reports, highlighting employment trends, top jobs, and required skills in advanced manufacturing through Q1 2018, are completed with research and analysis from the Workforce Intelligence Network of Southeast Michigan (WIN) and Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee, a region that’s home to more than 50 percent of the metalworking jobs in the country.

 “As demand for advanced manufacturing jobs continues to climb, the need for talent development in Michigan and the rest of our nation is imperative,” said Emily DeRocco, vice president education and workforce, LIFT. “Developing new ways to address these workforce needs by engaging both industry and academia will be the key to our country’s long term economic prosperity.”
