Capital Workforce Partners Recognizes Manufacturing Month by Connecting Manufacturers to Skilled, Certified Candidates Who are Ready to Work

HARTFORD, CT - 10/11/16 – Year after year, manufacturers say they can’t find the talent they need to keep up with their production needs.  In recognition of October as national Manufacturing Month, Daniel Rysz and Timothy Blonsky have stepped up their mission of matching individuals to training and matching trained candidates to real jobs in need of being filled at area manufacturers.

It’s all happening through the North Central Connecticut’s American Job Center network, with locations in Hartford, Enfield, Manchester and New Britain.

“First we work with individuals who may be a good fit for a career pathway in manufacturing,” says Daniel Rysz who is based in the American Job Center network as a Manufacturing Career Agent working with prospective students and job seekers.  “These are usually men or women who like to build things, work with equipment and machines, and who like to know the products they are manufacturing contribute to the local economy. Then it is our job to match these individuals to short term training opportunities at three of the Hartford Area’s Manufacturing Certificate programs at Manchester Community College, Asnuntuck Community College and Goodwin College.”

Timothy Blonsky, Capital Workforce Partner’s Advanced Manufacturing Coordinator continues, “Through our grants and funding sources, we provide scholarship assistance for these individuals that will cover the tuition costs for these cutting edge programs. And then we meet with employers to help match and place the right candidates for their needs.” 

As a result of Daniel and Tim’s efforts many individuals are on the pathway to lifelong success in Connecticut’s rapidly expanding Manufacturing Industry. 

As the workforce development board for North Central Connecticut, Capital Workforce Partners, one of their goals is to help individuals embark and stay on career pathways to help meet the workforce demand in major industries in the region.  With the recent positive press indicating that major companies like Pratt and Whitney and Electric Boat (along with their supply chain manufacturers) as well as medical and other manufacturing companies plan to experience unprecedented growth in the coming years, it is important that the supply side of the equation is ready to meet the demand.

Area colleges are teaching the skills these manufacturers need and Timothy and Daniel at Capital Workforce Partners and the American Job Centers are ready to provide assistance to cover costs that in most cases.  If you are an individual thinking you may want to be part of this new wave of a growing, cutting edge industry in Connecticut where you can have a viable career that can last the rest of your life, or if you are a manufacturer in need of qualified talent, contact Timothy Blonsky and/or Daniel Rysz for assistance.
