Springfield, MO -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/19/2018 -- In celebration of National Manufacturing Day, the Missouri Association of Manufacturers (MAM) is hosting the 2nd Annual Manufacturers Career Fair in St. Louis, MO. Manufacturers in Missouri are invited to promote and showcase their companies to potential employees and other manufacturing professionals in attendance. Students and Job Seekers are welcome to attend for Free.

"An outdated perception of manufacturing has created a negative stereotypical image. This stereotype prevents individuals from joining the manufacturing workforce. Manufacturers have good paying jobs, substantial benefits, advancement opportunities, providing education and training, while offering high-tech positions." said Kim Inman, MAM CEO. "We are proud to promote Manufacturing Day in Missouri with our Manufacturers Career Fair. MAM is proud to share insight, with our next generation, into modern day manufacturing, career opportunities, and growth. During this event, manufacturers will have direct interaction with students and job seekers."
