Help 1,000 people find jobs
In a rapidly developing world, the future of Chicago’s manufacturing relies on skilled labor. Changes in workforce requirements have left the manufacturing industry with over 30,000 vacant positions. To address this need, decrease unemployment, and directly employ at least 1000 Chicago area residents in high-paying advanced manufacturing careers, World Business Chicago (WBC) launched the 1000 Jobs for Chicagoland Manufacturing campaign. In order to be successful, the campaign needed to reach a broad range of citizens, communicate the benefits of manufacturing careers, and improve public perception of advanced manufacturing.
