Careers In 



Build the Future You've Been Dreaming About  

Manufacturing is all about skills and knowledge: innovating, designing, and making a product. It doesn't have to require a four-year degree—a starting position can be attained with a high school diploma and short-term training. And, once established, you can continue your education with the possibility of tuition reimbursement paid by your employer.

Still in School? Consider Your Local Career Tech Center

There are wide and diverse opportunities for current students to learn skills that will teach and prepare them for a successful and rewarding future. See the list below and click on the links for details about each opportunity. The application process for most high school programs begins sophomore year.

“ I enjoy working with my hands as well as my mind. The DRMA workforce internship program is a terrific opportunity to enter manufacturing, work in different areas, and understand the variety of career options that are available before I choose my career direction. ”  

Josiah, Student, Dayton Christian

Traditional high schools are also starting to incorporate technical training into their curriculum. If you're not sure if your school offers such programs, talk to your guidance counselor or contact Kayla at DRMA.
