Get Skills To Work

Apr. 25, 2017

Are you having trouble filling your manufacturing position? Looking to hire veterans? We have a solution for you. Get Skills to Work unites manufacturers and educators to prepare and place veterans in manufacturing careers. With an estimated 600,000 advanced manufacturing job openings across America, this program is committed to closing the gap and creating a new future for those who endeavored to make things better.

Get Skills to Work is a two-pronged approach to help build a sustainable model:

  1. Provide veterans with a virtual badge that translates their Military Occupational Speciatly ( MOS ) to civilian jobs in the mamufacturing industry and indentifies them as skilled for those jobs
  2. Help veterans obtain the additional akills they need in an accelerated pathway to acquire nationally reconized industry certifications

We are spearheading this program to get as many service men and women with qualifications for your positions with badges and generate the supply that local manufacturers require. To find out more about the program and how you can benefit,join us on May 7th, 9:00 a.m to 10:00 a.m. at the Houston -Galveston Area Council building located at :

3555 Timmons, 2nd floor Conference Room
Houston, TX 77027
