작업 설명

If a product isn’t handmade, chances are it was manufactured in a factory somewhere. Manufacturing goods is a highly complex yet well-organized process that involves several workers. Among the most critical factory employees are Manufacturing Engineers. These are the versatile experts who ensure production lines run smoothly and safely so products can be made as cost-efficiently as possible. 
They might be in charge of a wide range of manufacturing systems such as “computer networks, robots, machine tools, and materials-handling equipment.” Workplace safety is of major concern to Manufacturing Engineers as they look for ways to cut out wasteful aspects of production processes, taking into account how many workers are needed for a task, what steps they’ll perform, which technologies they’ll need, and how much it all costs. They may oversee quality assurance processes to ensure products meet specifications and are ready to ship out to stores or warehouses to await purchase.

기대와 희생

Manufacturing Engineers keep factory production running smoothly, but there’s a ton of work and planning to get to that point. From choosing laborers with the right skills and selecting the best tools, equipment, and machinery to laying out workspaces and establishing procedures, Manufacturing Engineers certainly have their work cut out for them! 
Companies rely heavily on their talents to keep production flowing, costs down, and workers safe. One bad decision or oversight can throw a proverbial monkey wrench in the works, causing expensive manufacturing problems ranging from defective products to safety recalls and total work stoppages. If a seriously unsafe product hits the market, it can tank a company’s reputation and spell financial ruin for its future. Other times, a product probably should’ve been nixed during the concept phase, such as Cheetos’ disastrous lip balm product fail. 

현재 동향

The job outlook is strong for Manufacturing Engineers, in part because of the cost savings they bring to the table. A major part of the job is staying on top of trends and innovations, of which there are several these days. 
Automation has long been a key goal of many factories and is becoming increasingly prevalent and easier to use. Mobile and collaborative robots are also primed to alter the manufacturing landscape, bringing exciting new capabilities to bear. Meanwhile, the fabled Internet of Things keeps chugging along, empowering companies to gather valuable data they can use to optimize processes. 
Hailed as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, Industry 4.0 is living up to the hype with several initiatives driven by “high-speed mobile Internet, AI and automation, the use of big data analytics, and cloud technology.” Additional trends include the spreading use of Enterprise Resource Planning, which is hardly new but is simpler to deploy now thanks to cloud-based SaaS. 

이 직업에 종사하는 사람들은 어렸을 때 어떤 종류의 일을 즐겼습니까?

Manufacturing Engineers are very methodical and process-oriented. They may have enjoyed doing meticulous activities that required following lots of steps in a precise order, such as building intricate LEGO sets. They’re keen on cutting out inefficiencies, and might have found ways to get their chores (or their homework) done faster than others might take. As with most engineers, they usually love figuring out how to turn abstract ideas into concrete realities through a bit of creative thinking and tinkering. 
Because they are often immersed in cutting-edge technology including AI and robotics, they might have been avid science fiction fans as kids. And since they must oversee the work of many people and groups, Manufacturing Engineers generally have well-developed soft skills that were likely cultivated in school extracurricular activities or simply from growing up in a large family.

  • Always see what benefits or resources schools offer their graduates. Do they help with interview prep or have close ties with local industry? Does the alumni network offer career-enhancing mentorship and networking? 
고등학교와 대학에서해야 할 일
  • It pays to get a jump start on college by taking prep classes in high school, such as math, physics, engineering, and technology. Strong English and technical writing skills will also pay off later 
  • Decide what type of manufacturing you want to get involved with, such as automotive, commercial products, computers, etc. 
  • Learn everything you can about the career field before signing up for classes. Do some early reconnaissance by reading job descriptions posted on employment portals 
  • Make a list of organizations you dream of working for, and maybe reach out to current employees to pick their brains

일반적인 로드맵
Manufacturing Engineer Gladeo Roadmap
1차 직장에 도착하는 방법
  • College grads will need to apply to entry-level Manufacturing Engineer positions in factories or warehouses
    • Having a year or two of relevant work experience will help make you more competitive when applying
    • Internships may be great opportunities to snag practical experience, plus they sometimes lead to full-time jobs!
  • Be flexible about the hours you can work. New hires may be tagged for night or weekend duty
  • Indeed, SimplyHired, Monster, USAJobs, ZipRecruiter, LinkedIn, Velvet Jobs 및 Glassdoor와 같은 취업 포털에서 알림을 신청하십시오. 
  • Ask everyone in your network about openings. Per PayScale, 85% of jobs are found through networking!
  • Ask your school’s career center for help with resume writing, mock interviewing, and connecting with recruiters
  • Do your homework on the company and tailor your resume to the specific job posting, every time
  • Review Manufacturing Engineer resume templates and common interview questions
  • Keep in mind that smaller companies may never have the advancement opportunities you might want later, but they are probably more likely to hire someone with less experience 
사다리를 오르는 법
  • Become a subject matter expert who gets things done, smooths processes, cuts costs, and keeps workers productive and safe
  • Map out your long-term goals, establish milestones, and strategize how you’ll achieve them
  • When you have enough work experience, knock out a professional certification
  • Get your Professional Engineer license to show your commitment to excellence and desire to tackle bigger responsibilities
  • Have frank conversations with your employer to discuss your career goals. Ask about promotion opportunities when the time is right, and be mindful of the time and effort they’ve invested in you
  • Try to stay flexible without compromising your dreams. If an in-house promotion is possible in the near future, it might be better to wait rather than jump ship to work for another company
  • Decide what’s more important to you — a higher pay rate or a more personally rewarding job? If you can find both, that’s even better! 
  • If you work for a smaller company, your options may be permanently limited unless you apply elsewhere, but if you can’t get a promotion then at least ask for a raise and justify your reasons
