The ARM, or Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing, Institute has announced the addition of job-matching functionality on its national workforce resource: RoboticsCareer.org. This new functionality connects workers and students to manufacturing jobs, apprenticeships, and internship opportunities that match specifically their skills and goals.
Job-matching is the latest development on RoboticsCareer.org that also includes a robust database of 16,700+ training programs for robotics careers in manufacturing, digital profile creation for students and job seekers, skills definition for robotics career pathways, and the ARM Institute’s Endorsement Program, which recognizes the nation’s most effective robotics training programs for advanced manufacturing.
The ARM Institute is the nation’s federal robotics manufacturing innovation institute and is part of the Manufacturing USA network. Since 2017, the institute has worked with its nearly 400 member organizations to catalyze 150+ robotics and workforce projects to strengthen U.S. manufacturing. The Institute catalyzes collaboration between industry, government, and academia to propel solutions that address urgent needs in manufacturing.
ARM worked with industry experts to develop the website
RoboticsCareer.org was built in collaboration with subject matter experts within the Institute’s membership consortium to address the manufacturing workforce shortage and enable manufacturers of all sizes to more easily adopt robotics.
The RoboticsCareer.org job-matching feature is unique in that it provides personalized job recommendations based on users’ existing skills and unique goals.
The matching system leverages the skills that the ARM Institute’s ecosystem defined during the creation of RoboticsCareer.org, centering on three primary career pathways. RoboticsCareer.org also offers this matching capability for training programs.
RoboticsCareer.org designed for manufacturing workers of all ages
With its robust suite of capabilities, RoboticsCareer.org supports the advanced manufacturing workforce at each stage of their career – from finding their first training program and entry level job to upskilling and increasing their pay through new opportunities.
The resource supports curious high school students who are just exploring career options, incumbent manufacturing workers who are primed for robotics roles, workers outside of the industry looking for a change, transitioning military members who are finding their next step, and everyone in between. RoboticsCareer.org brings critically needed awareness to the opportunities that exist within manufacturing.
Employers and manufacturers have the option to load their own jobs into RoboticsCareer.org, however, jobs are also automatically added and regularly updated through information from public job sites, including USAJobs for members of the military. This data is then analyzed, and the skills listed in the posted jobs are matched to the ARM Institute’s defined skills and career pathways. More than 3,500 open jobs are currently listed on RoboticsCareer.org.
“With our new job-matching functionality, RoboticsCareer.org uniquely supports the manufacturing workforce at each stage of their career.” stated Lisa Masciantonio ARM Institute chief workforce officer. “RoboticsCareer.org was built through collaboration with subject matter experts in the ARM Institute’s national member ecosystem. When using RoboticsCareer.org, you can be confident that the foundational information the resource uses is credible and aligns with industry needs.”
ARM partners see value in career site
“Workforce development is a critical part of our mission at the Association for Advancing Automation (A3), and we are proud to partner with the ARM Institute to deliver valuable resources like RoboticsCareer.org to educators, students and job seekers,” said Alex Shikany, vice president of membership and business intelligence at the Association for Advancing Automation (A3). “Robotics and automation industries are growing rapidly. Many exciting and rewarding careers are available to those who are looking.”
“I am proud to continue our long-term partnership with the ARM Institute to help connect students to many robotics job opportunities in manufacturing,” said Dan Mantz, chief executive officer of the Robotics Education & Competition (REC) Foundation. “This extraordinary resource will provide the next generation of innovators with customized job placements at every stage of their career.”
