ManufactureNJ is an initiative to help middle school students and high school students find passion and skills in the manufacturing world. We believe talent and creativity is the driving force that makes advanced technology work. Every student is passionate about something and we want to find that passion and help you use it as an invaluable skill for your career and above all, your life goals.
New Jersey’s Advanced Manufacturing Talent Network (M-NJ) builds partnerships in the manufacturing industry to develop and support advanced manufacturing in the Garden State and formulate strategies for competing at the regional, national, and global levels. We hope to educate the minds of young middle/high school students and inform them about the different career opportunities that exist within the manufacturing industry.
So stick around and learn more about what you could be doing to propel change in technology and yourself.
Know Your Options
So you’ve survived middle school and are almost finished with high school. Awesome! Between a few food fights in the cafeteria, playing hooky, and or maybe pranking some of your teachers, you know that you are growing up. You are having a ton of responsibility thrown at you from family, friends, teachers, and your guidance counselor. The most common, what are you going to do after high school? What are your plans? What do you want to do? Truth be told we’ve all been there and most of us were told that there’s only one path. Go to college, maybe rack up some debt, and hope to find a job in a super competitive market. But, what if you had other options, options that put you ahead of the game or maybe even give you a career that you are passionate about without trying to figure out what you are already good at it for 4 or 5 years. Best of all, you are provided with competitive salaries that could probably pay for four years of college in a year’s worth of work.
