What is the hardest part about manufacturing?
I am a middle school student and I took a quiz in class that told me manufacturing would be a good career choice for me. #school #student #graduate-school #high-school-classes #college #manufacturing
Manufacturing is also about building quality products in a reasonable time. Sometimes the work is routine, repeating processes. You develop a rhythm, but that can be stopped on occasion due to problems that need to be corrected. (Fix the issue.) You have to be prepared for making adjustments and problem solving. You should go to the Ford Rouge plant to watch cars being built. That’s big time manufacturing. Talk to your school about making that happen.
If you follow the college path, Agronomers, Chemists, physicists, mathematicians, Engineers, Human Resources professionals, are careers that can provide you with a challenging and fulfilling profession, as Mechanical Engineering did for me.
Look toward your present situation: how do you feel toward the sciences, mathematics in general. Do you like them? Do you enjoy doing exercises and learning about them? Maybe a college career or a community college career may be for you. However, if you feel more or less ok about the sciences, and you enjoy building a bike, assembling a computer, working the soil in a garden, working on a motor, and fixing it, maybe a vocational path may be more fulfilling.
One thing I will share with you from my experience for both paths: If you have a chance of getting two degrees or vocations at the same time you are studying for (say you are studying electronic tech course, try to get an HVAC course and a machinist course also or if you are studying Mechanical engineer, try to study two more years and get an electrical engineer or industrial engineer ). In short, get as much as a skill or profession set you can get in those years you are studying: it will help you immensely in your future for your understanding as well as for your job availability.
