Foundry Industry High School Career Day
The NE Wis Chapter of the American Foundry Industry is hosting a Career Day to expose the High School students in our region to the foundry industry and the variety of jobs that are available within our foundries. If you are looking for employment right out of high school or after completing your degree, there is a good chance that one of our foundries has a position for you.
The metalcasting industry is the original 'green' industry. Recycling is the foundation of our entire casting process. The U.S. is one of the largest suppliers of metal castings in the world. Wisconsin has one of the highest concentrations of foundries.
Whether you are looking for a job out of high school or once you complete your degree, consider the Foundry. Listen to employees from our foundries as the talk briefly about their jobs and the functions they perform for the foundry. They will also discuss what qualifications are required for their position. Each of these employees will be available throughout the day to discuss their job functions in a small goup atmsosphere.
Several of our local foundries will also have tables at the event so that students may find out more about these companies in a one-on-one setting.
Not sure what a casting is, or how they are made? No Problem! We will have 'Casting in a Box' at this event. 'Casting in a Box' is a portable, demonstration casting system that will allow us to melt metal, pour it in to a mold and produce real castings.
At the conclusion, all attendees will receive a commemorative medallion that was cast by one of our member foundries.
