The Transfr augmented reality experience is a mobile phone application-based AR experience that enables you to learn about jobs in manufacturing, training in VR for manufacturing jobs, the schools training for these jobs, and employers hiring for these jobs in each state with the backing of real data sources from the US Department of Labor.
Currently, there is no cost to try out or be a part of the 2022 Manufacturing Month AR Experience. We will let you know if this changes in future versions, way before it does.
Manufacturing Month is an event and activity series taking place every October in all 50 states across the country with a focus on teaching students and adult learners about manufacturing jobs in that state.
The current AR experience is all about manufacturing jobs and will be featured at various events throughout Manufacturing Month.
In the AR experience, you get to look at 5 different jobs in manufacturing, learn about training for them in VR and discover where to do your training (associations and schools plus which employers are hiring for these jobs in your state.
The core audience is students/learners but this could also be used as a pre-demo experience at an event for schools and/or industry professionals.
The five jobs featured are Welder, Maintenance, Repair, Machinist, and Assembler.
Sure! You can use this as a great example of creating a career pathway in a high-growth industry, however, the jobs, data, and training will vary greatly between industries.
These jobs were selected due to the number of job opportunities available, as well as the ability of a person in this job to earn a living wage plus prosper through upward mobility without a college degree in these states.
We will consider additional jobs as we look into other industries, all though we cannot include all jobs, we are certainly up to doing research on suggested professions to see if they are a good fit for another version of this experience. Please feel free to share any suggested jobs:)
Currently, our featured states are Alabama, Ohio, Tennessee, and Illinois.
These states were chosen by GTM for a variety of reasons including participation in a manufacturing month, number of employers, jobs, and partners in these states.
In the future, we would love to add more states, to be featured we request 5 employers, and school/ association partnerships.
Although their state might not be currently in the experience, we hope to expand to additional states in the future, lets’s start a conversation and see how we can work work with schools, employers, and associations in their state to potentially add their state into our next AR app experience.
Absolutely, please check out another state, for now, to see how it could work in your state.
Reach out to your manager and start a conversation, as mentioned the best opportunities here are ones with connections to schools and employers.
All leads are collected through web forms and shared through Salesforce with those connected to the state mentioned in the form.
The AR experience will be marketed through email, social media, our website, and digital ad campaigns as well as at various events in the five targeted states throughout Manufacturing Month in October 2022.
We only collect allowed data under Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), for students under 18 and have access to more form-curated data through our web forms. Our in-app data is collected to better understand our users but cannot be connected to any individual person.
