The local job outlook in manufacturing fields is looking up, and the Park Hills Job Center is hosting a manufacturing job fair at Mineral Area College’s North College Center on Wednesday, Oct. 24 to match local workforce talent with local employers.
According to Missouri Economic Research and Information Center, Manufacturing accounts for 11.2 percent of the state’s private sector employment. The industry has added 17,324 jobs since 2012, growing 1.4 percent per year over five years compared to the nation’s 0.8 percent growth rate over the same period.
Manufacturing wages continue to grow, statewide and nationally. Missouri’s 2017 manufacturing payroll totaled $15.2 billion, a $57,139 average wage. This is higher than the state’s $47,800 average private sector wage.
The Park Hills Job Center will partner with the MAC Career Services to host the manufacturing job fair at Mineral Area College’s North College Center (on the Park Hills, MO, campus) from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 24. Those interested in attending should bring their resume.  For more information, contact Becky Murphy, functional leader at the Park Hills Job Center, for more information. Her phone number is (573) 518-2431 and her email is rmurphy@mersgoodwill.org.
“With our 2nd annual Manufacturing Hiring Event, we are excited to bring employment opportunities with a variety of businesses throughout the area. It is a great way to connect job seekers and employers for a specific industry," Vickey S. Bonney, Workforce Development Specialist Missouri Job Center, said.
Information about the Advanced Manufacturing programs at Mineral Area College will be available. College representatives will be in attendance to share information about short-term, tuition-free training. Tours of the Advanced Manufacturing Lab will also be offered.
The Park Hills Job Center has secured several employers for the fair: Effex Management/TG Missouri; Piramal Glass Group; Atlas EPS; MetalTek; Botkin Lumber; MoCap; Talent Force; Piva; Forte. Murphy anticipates more manufacturing companies will attend.
