Hire Technology: Advanced Manufacturing and Logistics Jobs in Indiana’s Future

Spoiler Alert: There are great jobs out there for people with the right skills, but they don’t require a four-year degree!

Companies in our area, such as Press-Seal Gasket Corporation, Riverside Manufacturing, Fort Wayne Metals and MORE are looking for the next generation of employees and are supporting Hire Technology at North side High School. In fact, by 2016, forecasts predict there will be over 11,000 middle skill advanced manufacturing and logistics job openings in Indiana. These are jobs that require more than a high school diploma, but less than a four year degree. However, middle skills doesn’t mean middle wage. Advanced manufacturing and logistics jobs pay 40% and 30% higher than the state average respectively. What’s the message? There are great jobs out there for people with the right skills, but they don’t require a four-year degree.

That’s why North Side is offering a set of advanced manufacturing and logistics courses that use Hire Technology. Hire Technology is a curriculum developed in partnership with Indiana companies for Indiana students, because today’s advanced manufacturing and logistics careers require high-tech skills and knowledge. Students completing Hire Technology can earn up to 15 dual college credits and five industry-recognized certificates, equipping them to enter the workforce with demonstrated knowledge and marketable skills upon graduation. Top students also qualify for PAID internships. Hire Technology is used in North Side’s Introduction to Advanced Manufacturing & Logistics class and Advanced Manufacturing 1.
