Our friends at City Colleges of Chicago were nice enough to share this notice of a very interesting and cool trades event from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, October 28, 2021, at Daley College , 7500 South Pulaski Road, Chicago.

Ignite Your Future presents info on next-generation trades careers: white-hot market sectors where employers seek skilled tradespeople in very high demand. Here's their announcement:

October 2021 is Manufacturing Month at Daley College

Manufacturers say their biggest challenge is finding skilled workers, and Daley College is helping to fill that need

To help fill the need for more skilled workers in the trades, Richard J. Daley College will hold the much-anticipated event— Ignite Your Future— from 8:30am to 1pm on Thursday, October 28, for those interested in learning more about these career pathways that include welding engineering tech, electrical construction, industrial engineering, manufacturing tech, and more. The event will feature tours, free lunch, panel discussions and networking with industry leaders. This event is free and open to the public.

Daley College is located at 7500 South Pulaski Road in Chicago.

Today’s manufacturing workers are innovators and entrepreneurs, creators, makers and dreamers. Manufacturers produce mechanical parts that now orbit the earth on the international space station and build the nation’s first ever mass-produced all-electric pickup truck. Manufacturing Month is also a time to take stock of the challenges facing the manufacturing industry.
