There are projected to be 3.5 million available manufacturing jobs over the next 10 years caused by economic expansion plus baby boomer retirements.
More than 2 million of those jobs are expected to go unfilled unless something changes.
Our nation's military personnel transitioning to careers in the workforce pose a unique win-win opportunity for job seekers, employers, and the nation. Operation Next provides cost-effective, on-demand training to help transitioning soldiers develop the skills and acquire relevant credentials required for today's manufacturing jobs.
They've been tested on the front line. Help them get ready for your production line.
Here's how you can get involved.
Provide tours of your operations to familiarize job seekers
Mentor transitioning personnel
Promote/require industry credentials for job openings
