How to Find a Factory Job


Finding a factory job can seem like a challenging task, particularly if you've been out of work for some time or haven’t worked in a factory setting in recent years. You have several options for finding a factory job that is right for you. However, you must know what you're looking for and how to go about the job hunt. As with any type of employment, search regularly. Stay diligent, even if looking for a factory job becomes a bit tedious.

Things You'll Need

  • Local phone book or online telephone directory
  • Determine what type of factory job you seek and how much money you will need to earn to take care of your financial responsibilities. Your particular array of skills, weekly availability and experience in factory settings will become important factors. Applying for jobs for which you aren’t qualified or that pay too little will only waste your valuable time.

  • Consider going back to school if you need to learn new skills or brush up on old ones. Even if you are already well trained, recent schooling looks good on a resume, and many technical schools can help you find financial aid to continue your education. Many technical schools also offer placement assistance to their graduates.

  • Visit a local employment agency that deals with factory jobs. While most employment agencies supply factory workers to employers, some deal only with certain types of office work or other professions. Check your local phone book or Internet telephone directory for agencies. Before visiting the office, make a phone call to ensure that it places people in factory work.

  • Check your local newspaper classifieds section for factory jobs relevant to your experience. Also check online classifieds websites like Craigslist. Applying for multiple jobs over the Internet can increase your chances of quickly finding a factory job that’s right for you.

  • Ask friends and family members whether they know somebody who works at a factory or employs people in factory jobs. A referral is always a good way to find a job and can make the process much quicker and more convenient. Remain diligent about getting contact information from anyone who can help.
