Why an apprenticeship program might
be just what your company needs
Employers: Is recruiting a reliable stream
of qualified job candidates becoming a
challenge? Do you want to plan for the
future to create a workforce for the next 20
years and beyond?
If you answered “yes” to either of those
questions, an apprenticeship program
custom-designed for you by CareerSource
Research Coast could be just what your
factory floor needs.
In many manufacturing industries on
the Treasure Coast, and beyond, finding
skilled craftspeople — welders, machinists
and machine operators among other
trades — is becoming a serious and timeconsuming
challenge for employers.
Finding trained applicants in the burgeoning
logistics industry on the Treasure
Coast is another area where demand
is outstripping supply. That demand is
poised to soar in the near future as large
companies discover the strategic location
of the Treasure Coast. Walmart, CVS and
Amazon may be only the beginning. >>
