Sara H. asks…..
Q: What is the current state of manufacturing employment opportunities in Illinois?
A: Very good. But I’m sure it varies by community to community as do the wages. According to Projections Central, our iNAM program jobs are expected to have modest growth in the next year. For instance, Mechatronics jobs will increase by an estimated 1.5%, the need for CNC Machinists are expected to grow 1.9% while welding jobs are expected to rise by 3.9%. This is an exciting time to be in Advanced Manufacturing!
