UTICA, N.Y. – In conjunction with Manufacturing Day, MVCC held a job fair Friday featuring career opportunities available at local technology and manufacturing companies.

There were tours of the FABLab, interactive exhibits featuring New York State products and technologies and workforce development exhibits connecting job seekers with manufacturers.

There were more than 800 high school students and 200 college students at the event seeking more information on manufacturing jobs.

"Right now, the talent market is tight, there is no doubt about it. It makes us sharpen our pencil and it brings us up to a new level. You can cry about it if you want to, but we look at is as we are making ourselves better," said Rick Short, president of Indium Corporation.

MFG Day was created in 2012 by the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association to help companies find skilled employees and teach students about the opportunities available in the industry.
