The ARM (Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing) Institute is pleased to announce the addition of job matching functionality on its national workforce resource: RoboticsCareer.org. This new functionality connects workers and students to manufacturing jobs, apprenticeships, and internship opportunities that match specifically to their skills and goals. Job-matching is the latest development on RoboticsCareer.org that also includes a robust database of 16,700+ training programs for robotics careers in manufacturing, digital profile creation for students and job seekers, skills definition for robotics career pathways, and the ARM Institute’s Endorsement Program, which recognizes the nation’s most effective robotics training programs for advanced manufacturing.
The ARM Institute is the nation’s leading robotics Manufacturing Innovation Institute and part of the Manufacturing USA network. Since 2017, the Institute has worked with its nearly 400 member organizations to catalyze 150+ robotics and workforce projects to strengthen U.S. manufacturing. The Institute catalyzes collaboration between industry, government, and academia to propel solutions that address urgent needs in manufacturing. RoboticsCareer.org was built in collaboration with subject matter experts within the Institute’s membership consortium to address the manufacturing workforce shortage and enable manufacturers of all sizes to more easily adopt robotics.
The RoboticsCareer.org job-matching feature is unique in that it provides personalized job recommendations based on users’ existing skills and unique goals. The matching system leverages the skills that the ARM Institute’s ecosystem defined during the creation of RoboticsCareer.org, centering on three primary career pathways. RoboticsCareer.org also offers this matching capability for training programs.
With its robust suite of capabilities, RoboticsCareer.org supports the advanced manufacturing workforce at each stage of their career – from finding their first training program and entry level job to upskilling and increasing their pay through new opportunities. The resource supports curious high school students who are just exploring career options, incumbent manufacturing workers who are primed for robotics roles, workers outside of the industry looking for a change, transitioning military members who are finding their next step, and everyone in between. RoboticsCareer.org brings critically needed awareness to the opportunities that exist within manufacturing.
