NE Ohio effort will promote careers in manufacturing


YOUNGSTOWN — Billboards and advertisements promoting careers in manufacturing will start appearing in the Mahoning Valley next month.

They are part of a new campaign being launched by Cleveland-based Manufacturing Advocacy & Growth Network.

MAGNET kicked off the program locally Tuesday with a luncheon at Youngstown State University that was attended by about 30 officials from businesses and training programs.

MAGNET is out to stress in the yearlong campaign that most manufacturers are doing well and provide good-paying jobs and careers. MAGNET officials will be visiting the area throughout the year, trying to link companies with school officials and students.
