What An Event!

It was Manufacturing Day in Coshocton County today!  What is Manufacturing Day?  This Coshocton County Chamber sponsored event highlights the many job opportunities in the community to local high school students.  Approximately 250 students took part in this 2nd Annual Event.  Check out the video highlights below!

As you can tell from the video, the energy of the event was great.  The event is organized by the Coshocton County Chamber of Commerce and is sponsored by many local organizations.  Some of the sponsors include COTC, Ohio Means Jobs, and The Coshocton County Port Authority.  In addition, local manufacturers participated to show local students not only what the manufacturing process looks like, but also that there are real job opportunities in the community right now.  Some of these manufacturing partners included McWane Ductile, AK Steel, Jones Metal and Annin Flag.

There Are Jobs!

“This is a great event,” says Amy Stockdale.  “We know our local manufacturers are in dire need of skilled employees.”  This goes against the commonly held belief that there are not available jobs in Coshocton County.  An event like this proves this is not true.  In addition, it connects these employers with the workforce of tomorrow.  If you are curious about jobs that are currently available in Coshocton, you can head to the Ohio Means Jobs site here.

This is the 2nd year of Manufacturing day in Coshocton County and support seems to continue to grow.  There were students from all of the county schools including Coshocton, River View, Ridgewood and the Coshocton Career Center.  The number of participating manufacturing partners has grown this year as well.  The Coshocton County Chamber hopes that this helps students that are not sure about college, that they have opportunities at home.
