Conexus Indiana has launched a new program to help fill Indiana’s workforce pipeline with the next generation of advanced manufacturing and logistics talent. The state’s advanced manufacturing and logistics initiative says the campaign, Make IN Move, intends to raise awareness of the thousands of high-tech careers in the industry.
Conexus says the Make IN Move website allows users to take a test to see if they are a “maker” and should seek a career in advanced manufacturing, or are they “movers” and should pursue a logistics career.
“Technology is creating the next Industrial Revolution, and Indiana’s advanced manufacturing and logistics industries are leading the way. In the coming years, careers in advanced manufacturing and logistics will be some of the most sought after in Indiana. We just need to spotlight the exciting opportunities ahead,” said Brad Rhorer, chief talent programs officer, Conexus Indiana.
The organization says Make IN Move will also emphasize advanced manufacturing and logistics’ pay, which Conexus says range in average between $65,000-$75,000 per year.
Conexus says the program uses an interactive website, digital advertising and strategic partnerships with top employers to help Indiana’s next generation workforce to find a career. It also offers step-by-step guides for talent actively seeking a career in the industries and a toolkit for educators, counselors and parents to support young adults on their career journey.
