MI Bright Future to Present at Automation Alley Jan. 17

Join the MI Bright Future team on Tuesday, January 17th at Automation Alley for a presentation of 60 Minutes to Success: Connecting Business to the Education Pipeline.

Michigan is currently in the midst of one of the greatest economic recovery stories ever seen. Jobs are returning to the state, business is growing, and the rate of unemployed persons continues to decline. But the good news ends there. While businesses are growing, the labor force is ageing rapidly, and the next generation of workers lack the skills and knowledge of their predecessors. The future workforce is unprepared, which will disrupt many businesses’ current operations and also cripple their chances for long-term, sustained success.  MI Bright Future exists to prevent that from happening.

Local employers and other professionals interested in getting a head start on developing their future workforce are encouraged to join Sarah Sebaly, MI Bright Future Senior Program Manager, and Lisa Gordon, MI Bright Future Program Coordinator on Tuesday, January 17, 2017 from 3:30-4:30 p.m. at Automation Alley for a brief presentation about the MI Bright Future program. Attendees will learn more about the benefits MI Bright Future offers participating employers, and will receive deeper insight into how students will be connecting with them. Interested parties are asked to register with Automation Alley by clicking here.

MI Bright Future is the premier tool in Michigan for connecting the business community with local students. By ensuring students are on the right educational pathway while in high school, employers take a proactive role in shaping their future workers’ educational plans and guarantee they have the best-skilled workforce to meet the challenges of tomorrow. Utilizing an easy-to-use virtual interface, MI Bright Future connects students with employers via company profiles, career message boards, and a database of available work-based learning opportunities—such as internships, job shadows, etc.—as determined by employers upon sign-up. Because it is an online-based program, students are free to network with employers both during and after school. Better yet? Signing up for MI Bright Future is both easy and free!
