Wow, it’s hard to believe, but it has been four months since we started MadeInDaytonBLOG.com! Thank you for your continued support! Knowing that people are finding value in our work makes the time spent worthwhile.
I am pleased to announce some exciting new ways the blog is growing. First off, we have hired a part-time college intern, Jordan Powers. She started working with us a few weeks ago and has several projects underway. She is Junior at the University of Dayton studying Communications and Public Relations. She lives near West Chester and is very familiar with the Dayton region. Currently, she is working on a series of articles that bring together hours of research by the Ohio Manufacturers Association.
Jordan is also beginning a series of interviews with regional experts in business, higher education, government and others. She will also be interviewing some of the different organizations in our region so that we can learn what they do and how they can help us. Woven into these articles will be their personal views on what it will take to continually make the Dayton region grow and prosper.
We are also pleased to announce that MadeInDaytonBLOG.com is working with a group of graduate students from Wright State University. The goal of this project is to study ways to help grow the blog so that we can continue to help add value to our readers while helping the region succeed.
And another exciting addition will be coverage of political candidates. We are asking campaigns their opinion and finding out what the candidates believe. We want to know how they feel about manufacturing so that our readers can be more informed.
Are you hiring? We want to know about it! We are currently working on an article about the amount of unfilled jobs in manufacturing in the 12 county Dayton region! The only way to address our skilled worker shortage is to know the facts behind it and how many positions are open. Either post the information below in the comments section or e-mail us at info@MadeInDaytonBlog.com.
So what are we missing? What do you want to see? What do you have to say? Send us your thoughts, or post them below… we want to make sure that we are adding value… not just more noise on the internet!
Thank you again for your support, we really appreciate it!
