1Why 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.
2How 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.
3How do I become a leader in a specific quadrant?
As a sponsor or by invitation, you can be on a quadrant steering committee. Each quadrant needs leaders to identify the best companies and professions to include in order to create a high-quality experience for the students. The quadrant champions will be elected by the group and put in charge of the overall composition and flow of their career quadrant. This includes assuring the hands-on activities complement each other and engage students. The quadrant champions will be highly visible.
4Does it cost anything to exhibit an occupation
There is no registration fee to be an exhibitor. These are the working professionals that will engage directly with the students and share career expertise and advice. They will help design and implement the various job-related demonstrations featuring tools and equipment of their occupations. Enthusiasm for what you do is an important qualification for this role.
5How are we paying for this event?
MiCareerQuest South cannot take place this year without generous, much appreciated financial support from businesses and other organizations across the region. Depending on the visibility level you seek for your company, you have several sponsorship levels to choose from (see chart below).
