The Soldier For Life Podcast

Sep 16, 2019

This episode is about a Career Skills Program (Skillbridge) in the Manufacturing Industry with Babs Chase, Vice President, Military and Veterans Programs, The Manufacturing Institute.  
Heroes MAKE America is The Manufacturing Institute’s initiative to build a pipeline between the military and manufacturing.  Their signature program arms transitioning service members, veterans and military spouses with the skills and certifications to find – and excel – in careers in manufacturing. The program also works to educate manufacturers on how to recruit, hire and retain talent from the military community.  
The manufacturing industry is experiencing historic levels of optimism and growth but that optimism is also fueling a workforce crisis.  - Manufacturers are creating more open jobs than there are skilled workers to fill them.   The military talent is well-positioned to transition into these careers. 
Heroes MAKE America is open to service members within their last six months of military service, veterans and military spouses. Heroes enrolls transitioning service members while they are still on active duty, enabling them to continue to receive military pay and benefits.
