Skills Gap in Manufacturing Discussed by FactoryFix Founder

Patrick O’Rahilly, CEO and Founder of FactoryFix, a recruiting platform that connects manufacturers to vetted, skilled workers, was recently featured in Forbes. O’Rahilly discussed the rehabilitation of U.S. manufacturing. Read the full article here

Rahilly noted, “I believe that the very image of manufacturing needs rehabilitation. Many people do not consider working in a manufacturing facility to be an honorable and well-respected profession anymore. Over the last several decades or so, there has been a shift in social expectations.”

O’Rahilly operates a U.S. manufacturing jobs board, which gives him insight into manufacturing jobs, the hiring process companies use, and the current skills gap the industry is facing.

“Unfortunately, most students pursuing four-year degrees in STEM-related occupations are not choosing to bring those skills to the manufacturing sector after graduation,” added O’Rahilly.

About FACTORY MADE

About FactoryFix:  

FactoryFix’s purpose is two-fold: 1) to help companies with hiring by providing access to a unique talent pool, vetting applicants, providing salary insights, generating job listings, and other tools to streamline the process. 2) It also allows job seekers to create profiles to easily find employers that fit their skill-sets, thus maximizing their earning potential.

Patrick O’Rahilly, Founder of FactoryFix, explains, “The result is a tremendous time and costs savings when compared to hiring through a traditional staffing agency or job board. Both have their advantages, but staffing firms are expensive, and job boards require a lot of time and effort to sift through unqualified candidates. The FactoryFix platform takes the best of each and combines it into a turn-key hiring solution made exclusively for this industry.”

Companies that engage in an annual subscription are guaranteed qualified workers for their open positions. Some of the most popular jobs on FactoryFix include operator, maintenance, welding, machining, and automation roles. Explore more than 250,000 jobs on the most robust US Manufacturing job board today: FactoryFix.com.

Few hiring solutions offer quantifiable success rates in matching top talent to positions with the appropriate skill sets. Only through a robust platform that incorporates deeper-level matching can hiring efficiency be measured and maximized.

FactoryFix guarantees a total number of hires per year to ensure that customers meet their desired cost-per-hire target. The company recently introduced a 3-directional chat service, TalentText, to further expedite the hiring process. Request a demo.
