The manufacturing industry is critical to Florida’s economic competitiveness; however, there are significant shortages in skilled workers. In turn, companies are turning to apprenticeship programs to develop, grow, and retain a skilled workforce. Manufacturing offers many different career paths that can be found in a variety of industries, such as medicine, aerospace, industry, textile, food and beverage, and pharmaceuticals. Job opportunities reach beyond the area of production to departments such as rapid prototyping, design engineering, quality assurance, program management and technical sales.

You can begin your career by obtaining a GED, completing high school, earning a degree, or you can even jump right in with limited to no experience. Apprenticeships and on-the-job training opportunities will allow you to earn wages while getting work experience. So if you are flexible, good at problem solving, and pay close attention to detail, then manufacturing may be the industry for you!
