Within the advanced manufacturing industry, there are a variety of entry-level jobs that pay well and provide opportunities for advancement — jobs for high school graduates with postsecondary training or education but less than a four-year college degree. Individuals who participate in some form of postsecondary training — be it on the job, in a training center or at a community college — are often even better positioned to succeed in the manufacturing sector. Some employers and industries may require specialized training or education beyond a high school diploma. In addition to motor vehicle production, other leading manufacturing industries with good job opportunities include semiconductor and electronic components, aerospace products and parts, and architectural and structural metals.
