DANBURY — The Northwest Regional Workforce Investment Board has announced the launch of Careerpath, its new smartphone and desktop app designed to guide those who are interested in pursuing a career in manufacturing.

Careerpath will guide participants to register on cthires.com, meet with a career coach and acquire training to land them an interview at local manufacturing companies.

The manufacturing industry is growing fast in Connecticut, but employers face a barrier to fill open positions with skilled employees.

“This app is designed to be self-paced for those looking to begin a manufacturing career, not just a job,” said Executive Director Catherine Awwad. 

“The Manufacturing Your Future curriculum will prepare job seekers for entry into the field of manufacturing with stackable credentials that meet the needs of many area manufacturing employers.”
