Spring 2020 Manufacture Your Career Event
This spring, SVAM and Finley Green, Director Career Services, organized a Manufacture Your Career panel discussion at King University. The event focused on highlighting the manufacturing sector and the career paths it offers. Panelists discussed multiple topics including pay and benefits, employer desired skills, and different job opportunities for varying levels of education. Students took the opportunity to ask the panel members interesting and insightful questions about manufacturing. Students networked with the panelists at the end of the event, discussing job opportunities, internships and asking further questions. The event was a terrific opportunity for local manufacturers to interact with possible future employees. The 58 students in attendance of the events represented a variety of college majors. Participating companies included Hapco, General Dynamics Mission Systems, Wolf Hills Fabricators, and Strongwell.
