U.S. Manufacturers Bullish on Their Careers

Of the 3,766 manufacturing professionals who responded to a survey, 76 percent say they would choose the same career if they had to do it all over again.

As the New Year approaches, those manufacturers who are thinking back are smiling at the career decisions they have made over their lifetimes. According to ThomasNet.com, more than 1,600 manufacturers responding the Industry Market Barometer survey say that, if they had to do it all over again, they would pursue a career in their current industry.

“To these respondents, U.S. manufacturing has never lost its original glory, and they want to transmit that enthusiasm to younger generations,” said a spokesperson.

ThomasNet.com’s Industry Market Barometer (IMB) is an annual survey of buyers and sellers of products and services in the industrial market. Respondents are engineers and purchasing agents, business owners and managers, and sales and marketing executives from manufacturers, distributors and service companies.

The 3,766 professionals who responded are from North America, and the majority represent small companies (fewer than 100 employees and less than $10 million in revenue), mirroring the makeup of the industrial/manufacturing segment.
