Tips for Entry

Learn more about the different career opportunities in U.S. manufacturing, meet others working in the field, and gain access to educational programs, mentoring, job referrals, and other resources by joining professional associations such as the Association for Manufacturing Technology (https://www.amtonline.org) and the Technology Student Association (https://tsaweb.org).

Get an internship or part-time job in a manufacturing engineering company to gain valuable work experience while you are still in school. Ask your school's career services office for assistance with the internship and job search.

Attend and volunteer at industry conferences and events to keep up with industry news and developments. Find upcoming event listings on professional associations' Web sites, such as https://tsaweb.org/events-conferences/calendar and https://www.amtonline.org/Calendar.
