Precision Machining is a branch of fabricated metals manufacturing that continues to have a high demand for people with skills.
Even at the depths of the last recession, I saw want ads in the major papers in cities across the country from companies looking for skilled machinists, setup men, and toolmakers- people with skills.
So with job openings even during a recession, Precision Machining is a great industry to find a job.
What many people don’t realize is that its also a great place to find a career.
Finding a job is an important part of having a quality life. Finding a job that sustains a career and lifelong employment is- well as you can see from this photo- its not all that rare in the precision machining industry. Here is a company that recently honored 24 of their employees for 25 years or more service.
That’s a Career!
