Manufacturing Employment Opportunities
Monday, June 13, 2022
Are you looking for a good paying job that may not require education beyond high school to start? Consider a career in manufacturing!
Manufacturing could offer you a great career path straight out of high school. More than 60% of manufacturing openings in the latest Minnesota Job Vacancy Survey from Q4 2021 didn’t require any postsecondary education. And according to that same survey the median wage offer for a position in manufacturing in Minnesota is $22.48 to start. That means that half of the current openings pay above that amount. Many manufacturing positions offer opportunity for advancement – with greater responsibility and greater pay – sometimes with employer-provided training. In fact, average annual wages for workers in manufacturing are $74,626, 11% higher than across all industries in Minnesota.
