Your Next Act in Manufacturing: Building Tomorrow's Workforce in Connecticut

Tuesday, May 18, 2021
From 10:00am to 11:15am Eastern Time


Contact: AARP CT

A growing demand for new skilled workers to meet the needs of Connecticut's resurgent manufacturing industry – estimated at 25,000 to 35,000 positions for the state’s manufacturing companies in the next two decades – is outpacing the supply, which has created an increasing need for instructors. Manufacturing specific instructor opportunities exist throughout the state at colleges and pipeline programs. The entry points are such that a manufacturing retiree could earn a little income by working a few hours a week or entirely re-career into a full-time position. No teaching experience or degree is required for many positions, and professional development courses for manufacturing professionals looking to switch to college instruction are available. Attendees will hear about opportunities and have a chance to ask questions. Please review the job descriptions that will accompany your registration confirmation. This event will also be held on 5/12/21 at 5:30PM.
