FACT: Over the next decade nearly 3.5 million manufacturing jobs will be created

2 MILLION of these jobs will likely go unfilled. 2015 Skills Gap report, Deloitte

 

What are we, as a region, doing to encourage West Michigan youth to choose careers in manufacturing?

MiCareerQuest is a hands-on career readiness event for middle and high school students created to inspire and direct young people to viable careers in high-demand occupations and to address the need for talent.

 

CORE PHILOSOPHY
MiCareerQuest is an employer-driven event.  Employer champions - assisted by West Michigan Works! staff - drive employer participation and the creation of student activities. MiCareerQuest engages students through one-on-one conversations with professionals and hands-on activities that allow students to experience and hopefully, spark an interest in, the various careers.  Region ISDs drive student participation.

 

THE EVENT
Students roate through quadrants highlighting four industries - Construction, Healthcare, Information Technology and Manufacturing.  Interactive exhibits showcasing various occupations and conversations with professionals who do thse jobs every day open students' eyes to opportunities for great careers in West Michigan.
