Manufacturing Execs First Look at 'Creators Wanted—Making the Future Immersive Experience'

June 18, 2021
Companies such as Toyota, ExxonMobil, Celanese and Trane Technologies examine a new tool to attract the next generation of manufacturing talent.

The manufacturing sector hit a recond that it didn't want to hit. There are now 851,000 job openings in the U.S.

So, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), along with the Manufacturing Institute, is taking their Creatives Wanted program on the road. On June 16, the immersive experience was previewed by executives on NAM's board.

The immersive, interactive Creators Wanted experience is truly incredible," Jay Timmons, CEO of NAM told IndustryWeek. "The pictures only capture part of what is going to be an amazing tool for manufacturers as we open minds and eyes to the possibilities of modern manufacturing."

Timmons talked with Yahoo Finance about the goals of the program, as well.
