The fields of manufacturing and engineering are evolving rapidly; many of today’s most promising careers paths did not even exist 20 years ago. That fact is creating opportunities for students and for working adults.
This trend is expected to continue, so deciding on a career—or a career change—means planning for flexibility, change, and life-long learning. But first, it requires self-examination.
Questions to ask when considering a career path:
For students, a good place to begin to research career opportunities is through the Be What I Want to Be website. It features information about careers, interviews with workers in those careers, and games and prizes.
Learn about careers in automation technology by visiting the You and Improved website.
Find jobs and career information through the Employment Training site www.doleta.gov/jobseekers
