Industrial Technician Jobs
As the manufacturing sector in the United States continues to grow, marking a resurgence that has added more than 700,000 new jobs in the past five years, more highly trained and skilled workers will be needed to work in different sectors across the country. Production is returning to the United States from overseas and the increase in natural gas extraction and its related by-product processing are helping to drive manufacturing. This is great news for those who have decided on a career as an industrial technician.
What do you Know About the Reaccreditation Processe
Rosedale Technical College recently started the process to be reaccredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC).
Every five years, the process seeks to assess and enhance the educational quality of an institution, ensure consistency in institutional operations, promote self-evaluation and institutional improvement and provide for public accountability within a peer-review framework.
Rosedale believes the reaccreditation process acts as a yardstick for their programs and processes. Certain components of the College are compared to benchmark rates so that the administration knows if it should be working towards improvement in certain areas, or if it meets or exceeds acceptable rates. It’s a critical part of delivering quality assurance to not only the students of Rosedale, but also the community hire our graduates.
Supporting Students’ Job Search
Rosedale Technical College provides top-notch education and training to adult students of all ages. We also believe in preparing and supporting students during their next career step: the job search.
Rosedale holds several job fairs each year to match up employers with students who are ready to begin their careers. (KDKA TV came to our last job fair—you can view the video here.) Each student takes a career preparation course that teaches them how to write a resume and cover letter, prepare for an interview, choose from job offers, and follow up with potential employers. As the need for skilled workers rises, so do the numbers of employers who attend our job fairs.
The Importance of Manufacturing Sectors
As manufacturing continues its renaissance in the United States, creating a bright spot in our country’s recovery from the economic problems of the past seven years, more skilled workers will be needed to fill the new jobs that are being created in every region. These jobs are not only being recalled from overseas, they are appearing because of the new manufacturing projects that are being funded in several commercial and industrial sectors.
In fact, Pennsylvania has more than half a million manufacturing employees as of 2013, and that number is expected to grow each year through the end of the decade.
Job Opportunity Prep
Rosedale Technical College offers many in-demand programs that make our students a valuable resource for hundreds of companies in the Western Pennsylvania area and beyond. We recently announced that we have received approval to create a Applied Business Management program, which is a fast-growing field with job prospects that are slated to grow by nearly 20% within the next decade.
Students who would like to apply their hands-on skills with a management background should consider Applied Business Management. It provides you with business skills for jobs in the commercial, business, and industrial fields. Our graduates will be able to work on the floor or in the offices of plants, factories, and manufacturing centers.
