MI Bright Future helps your student…

MI Bright Future is a safe, one-stop place for your student to connect with employers to explore local companies and in-demand careers. Through MI Bright Future, students ask career- and company-focused questions of local professionals, explore company profiles, and even participate in career development opportunities, like internships, job shadows and more.

…bridge the gap…

When students understand the connection between education and the world of work, academic performance and career outcomes improve. MI Bright Future helps your student achieve his or her goals by bridging the gap between the classroom and the workplace, showing them how what they learn today translates to the work they will do tomorrow. Through career- and company-focused discussion boards, company profiles, and a database of work-based learning experiencesActivities meant to improve and expand career and workplace knowledge, such as guest speaking, internships, and job shadows., students can find answers to their career questions even when counselors are not available to help.

…and gain experience.

In today’s job market, almost every job seems to require some level of experience. Because there has never been an online job board for internships for high school students, many high schoolers have found searching for work experience relevant to their career interests a daunting and frustrating task. Until now. MI Bright Future provides students with a database of approved work-based learning opportunities—like job shadows, internships, apprenticeships, and more—offered by local, background checked employers interested in working specifically with high school students. These experiences can be instrumental in determining a career pathway and can be the difference between finding a permanent career and settling for an unrewarding job.

Through MI Bright Future you and your student can:

  Assess

skills, abilities, and preferences to see how they match up with careers of interest.

  Explore

careers through hundreds of career profiles that include job descriptions, education and training requirements, and projected salary information.

  Connect

to local companies and career professionals throughout Michigan through company profiles, career and company discussion boards, work-based learning opportunities, and more.

  Discuss

career questions directly with real-life professionals, follow discussions of interest, and read questions others have had about careers.

  Experience

careers firsthand by searching for job shadowing, mock interviews, company tours, company events, and internship opportunities offered by employers in your area.

  Understand

the education and training required for a particular career, how colleges and other schools compare to one another, and how to find college prep and financial aid information.

  Develop

a career plan, write a resume and cover letter, and prepare for future interviews with step-by-step help.
