What is the best way to prepare you for the manufacturing field.
I am a middle school student and I took a quiz in class that told me manufacturing would be a good career choice. #career #school #careers #majors #manufacturing #career-counseling
If your school has it take a shop class so you get exposed to tools and making things. Talk to the shop teacher about other things that goes on in manufacturing. You can also contact businesses in your city and ask them if they can show you what they do in manufacturing or ask your school councilor if they know any companies.
You can also google this and read a lot about what goes on.
I'm glad you are seeking advice and following up on what results the quiz gave you. some questions to ask yourself.... do I like STEM? Science, Technology, Engineering and Math? These are all subjects that play a huge role in the manufacturing field. I think if you like one or more of those subjects really pay attention, learn them and find the jobs within manufacturing that will require those subjects. Also, when you get into high school there should be some career technical education, (hands on), classes that you can take after your common content class credits are met. I would strongly suggest you enroll in a class such as engineering, construction, or CNC machining if those classes are offered. Once you do that next steps would be do do job shadows, attend field trips such as national manufacturing day, if offered. This will help you to learn about many types of jobs in this industry. Your counselor and instructors should be able to coach you also, along the way. Best Wishes to you as you continue figuring out your pathway.
