ARM Institute Introduces New Functionality on to Grow and Empower the U.S. Manufacturing Workforce

The ARM (Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing) Institute has introduced new functionality on, the institute’s national workforce resource for robotics careers in manufacturing. The new capabilities provide much needed guidance to understand opportunities in advanced manufacturing, which enables students and workers to plan their careers, and connect directly to jobs or training. The redesign also aims to increase interest in manufacturing careers by illustrating the importance of these roles to the nation.

Designed using input from the institute’s 400+ member organizations, supports students and workers throughout their full robotics journey, connects hiring manufacturers to qualified candidates, and helps schools and training programs engage with interested students.

Millions of manufacturing roles are at risk of being left unfilled in the coming years. was built to address this historic workforce gap by increasing interest in manufacturing roles and supporting students and workers at each stage of their manufacturing journey – from getting started with their training to connecting to jobs and upskilling opportunities. Since its introduction, has helped more than 70,000 individuals understand opportunities in manufacturing, plan their careers, find training, and connect to jobs.

“ is a key driver to filling the manufacturing workforce gap and making these important careers more accessible,” noted Lisa Masciantonio, ARM Institute Chief Workforce Officer, “The new capabilities on the site will help to support workers at each stage of their career, from finding training to connecting to personalized career opportunities.”

Users on the site echoed Lisa’s sentiment in the ARM Institute’s recent user survey:

“Using, I was able to figure out if starting a career path in robotics was right for me.” – Annabelle Pasiecki, user.

“As a robotics engineer looking to change jobs, I found to be a great website to search for jobs in the robotics and automation sector, better than any other websites I have used before.” – Jatin Vijay Mayekar, user.

“As an advanced manufacturing and robotics instructor, I am always looking for ways to connect what I am teaching to actual career opportunities for my students. has become one of my best resources for helping to match students with careers where they can utilize their robotics training.” – Charles Nabrit, user.

The new functionality includes:

  • A completely re-designed homepage that features in-depth previews of robotics jobs (including the skills and education needed for these jobs, information about salaries and wages, and more), a quiz that matches users to personalized career recommendations, an interactive graphic illustrating work on a factory floor, and numerous videos showcasing people working in manufacturing.
  • The inclusion of internships in the job-matching functionality.
  • New LinkedIn integration that allows individuals to create an account using their LinkedIn profile.
  • Testimonials from students who have graduated from training programs that have been endorsed by the ARM Institute. is the nation’s only resource dedicated specifically to empowering the nation’s robotics workforce in manufacturing. More than 16,700 training programs are listed on, ranging from high school programs through PhD programs. Thousands of jobs are added and updated regularly on the site with each job matching to the skill profiles the ARM Institute has created for robotics jobs in manufacturing.
