MiCareerQuest South is not your typical career fair. In fact, it is not a career fair at all. It is a career exploration experience for thousands of high school students across our region. This year, you can be part of launching MiCareerQuest for our region. Like the successful Grand Rapids event, we are focusing on in-demand jobs in these four career sectors: Advanced Manufacturing, Construction, Health Sciences and Agricultural Science. Students will visit all four industry quadrants and participate in hands-on, interactive activities showcasing various occupations and have conversations with working professionals from a multitude of companies in our region.

Why Should I Get Involved?

You will have a great opportunity to encourage thousands of students to consider pursuing the needed jobs in your industry – and to play an important role in preparing our youth for viable careers, shaping our region’s future workforce. Also, you and your team can identify students that might be a good fit for internships, job shadowing and more.

How Do Sponsorships Work?

MiCareerQuest South consists of four Quadrants that represent major industries in our region: Advanced Manufacturing, Construction, Health Sciences, and Agricultural Science.  Sponsors support a Quadrant individually and by extension the corresponding industry.
