The manufacturing industry continues to suffer from an acute labor shortage. In fact, the manufacturing skills gap in the U.S. could result in 2.1 million unfilled jobs by 2030, according to a new study by Deloitte and The Manufacturing Institute.

Under a recent award from the Advanced Manufacturing Office of the Department of Energy, The National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) is currently constructing an education and workforce development roadmap in conjunction with Tooling-U SME and Julius Education. An outcome of this work is the creation of an Advance Manufacturing Career Map – a highly interactive, engaging online tool for the visualization of industry jobs, associated skills, and how those jobs and skills “ladder up” to careers, to help employers with these challenges.

This session will discuss the value of career maps for exploring jobs, what is important to today’s job-seekers, how career maps are useful for recruitment and retention, and the Advanced Manufacturing Career Map status of completion.
