Metalist Explores Job Shadowing Program
This past November, CAMC held a member meeting at the Capital Area Career Center (CACC), which included a tour of their machining, welding and engineering areas. Shortly thereafter, Bob Sherer of Metalist International, Inc. (Metalist) reached out to the staff of the CACC to discuss a possible “job shadowing” activity for students in the precision machining program. 

A few short months later, two CACC students have visited the facility to learn about job opportunities in manufacturing, specifically at Metalist.  Alex Speck and Dean Wooden (pictured below) visited Metalist on Janary 26, 2016. As part of their job shadowing experience, they met with experienced machinists and engineers to learn about the company and the role of machinists.  Two more students will visit the company before the end of January.  Furthermore, Metalist is exploring a formal workplace learning experience with CACC students. 

Ed Reeser, owner and President of Metalist International, notes that companies aren’t as active with schools and students as they were in the past.  It is critical that manufacturers engage with young people and schools to nurture an interest in making things.  If we don’t, other sectors will capture the attention of young people.
