Students from more than 20 schools across the Southern Tier of New York state will learn about career opportunities within the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. They’ll also have the opportunity to speak with Raymond professionals about the next generation of manufacturing and how they can pave their own career paths in this industry. The Raymond Corporation is celebrating National Manufacturing month this October with the theme Next-gen Manufacturing: Pave Your Career Path as well as an accompanying infographic.
“The material handling industry is craving the younger generation’s fresh thinking, which can push and challenge our industry to stretch and reach new potential,” said Rick Harrington, senior vice president of operations, Raymond. “We want to ignite curiosity among students about career possibilities in STEM and showcase opportunities available in their community.”
