Career Connection

MAME is Your Manufacturing Career Connection

Keeping MAME Members connected with virtual tours, networking, and training events!

You have spoken! We heard! This is our strategy to help the industry attract and retain skilled employees! We are dedicated to helping Maine employers find the talent they need to stay competitive.

Our workforce partner, Destination Occupation (link here) is now the workforce arm of MAME! Since January 2020, Destination Occupation has created the needed workforce system for our manufacturers!

Manufacturing Technology Training program: A 5-week course allowing individuals from state and federal assistance programs gain entry-level experience to direct hires into manufacturing careers.

Want to showcase your company to students and educators? Destination Occupation can provide a custom-made video that can inspire students and educators when virtually visiting your company!

Nearly 72% of Maine manufacturers cannot find the skilled workers they need. The Manufacturing Career Connection will raise the profile of manufacturing in Maine and share some of the sector’s best kept secrets.

Manufacturing Month…and all year long!

Manufacturing Month…and all year long! October is Manufacturing Month in Maine. MAME kicks off the month with a series of manufacturing virtual tours as part of MFG DAY. Not to worry, though, if MFGDAY (the first Friday every October) does not work for you, you can host these tours all year long. You can sign up anytime!
