An Event on October 27, 2016:

MiCareerQuest MFG Info Session

Register here.

According to West Michigan Works! Discover Manufacturing, over the next decade, 3.5 million manufacturing jobs will be needed; two million of those are expected to go unfilled due to a gap in skilled labor. What are we, as an industry, doing to inspire young people to choose careers in manufacturing?

Join fellow manufacturers across West Michigan to brainstorm and create hands-on, exciting and inspiring exhibits for MiCareerQuest 2017, a hands-on career readiness event for students created to inspire and direct young people to viable careers in high-demand occupations.
