High School Students:

Here’s a Great Opportunity to Tour a Modern Manufacturing Facility in Oakland County (and Ask Questions!)


Students from Oakland County’s four technical campuses and high schools will have a great opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at what today’s engineers, technicians and other staff do each day at advanced manufacturing facilities throughout the region during Oakland County Manufacturing Day on Friday, Oct. 5, 2018.  Companies of all sizes will open their doors to provide a close look at their design labs, testing centers and manufacturing operations.

Accompanied by their teachers and counselors, students will hear directly from working professionals about what they love to do and the skills required to get there. The goal of Manufacturing Day is to inspire young adults to explore the broad range of high-paying, fulfilling job opportunities in southeast Michigan and discover if there is a career just right for them.

Participating in the tours are approximately one hundred job counselors, teachers and company volunteers who will enrich the students' career experiences.

This will be the fourth year Oakland County, Oakland Schools, Oakland Community College and Oakland County Michigan Works! have collaborated on this special day to help address the shortage of skilled manufacturing workers . Follow events on social media via #MfgOak and #MfgDay18.
