When working with a recruiter, it never pays to "sugarcoat" or beat around the bush. The more straightforward you are, the better a recruiter can help you and the more satisfied you will be in the end. A recruiter is trained to get you what you want - so try your best to not confuse him or her!
In early 2015, a Cleveland manufacturer employing 76 skilled workers including welders, machinists, and engineers confided that he wanted to develop a value engineering program and add customers in Northeast Ohio. A growth assessment identified three priorities: 1) Find financing to enable a $600K process automation investment, along with associated process improvement to make best use of the equipment, 2) Increase plant efficiency by engaging employees to take ownership of continuous improvement, and 3) recruit an open Manufacturing Lead position.
Manufacturing matters to Cleveland. Manufacturing is the foundation of the community's current and future economy because it:
- Employs Cleveland residents
- Provides payroll tax to the City of Cleveland
- Creates three jobs in other sectors for every manufacturing job
The non-profit Lake Erie Energy Development Corporation (LEEDCo) is currently developing a demonstration project called "Icebreaker" that will solve the unique challenges of deploying wind turbines in a freshwater environment.
