Kathryn Troutman | Federal Career Coach

2) Manufacturing New Technology

Double Funding for the Manufacturing Extension Partnership: The Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) works with manufacturers across the country to improve efficiency, implement new technology, and strengthen company growth.

This highly-successful program has engaged in more than 350,000 projects across the country and in 2006 alone helped create and protect over 50,000 jobs. But despite this success, funding for MEP has been slashed by the Bush administration. Barack Obama and Joe Biden will double funding for the MEP so its training centers can continue to bolster the competitiveness of U.S. manufacturers.

Jobs to Look For: Manufacturing, Engineering Technology

Majors: Engineering, IT

Federal Agencies: Department of Labor (may be funding training centers)

High Growth Expected In: Automobile Industry

    I'm so glad we have a president that is paying close attention to what our economy is doing. He will make mistakes, but nobody has a crystal ball you can count on. It took a long time to get here and it will take just as long to get out. I wish him all the best of luck

I am in Michigan if that helps you. Is there more classes offered then what you have listed here.
