Have you checked out the Career Investigator for Northwest Michigan!?

Career Investigator








This online platform helps students explore STEM-related careers that are in high demand in our region, as well as nationally recognized local programs that result in great-paying jobs--often before students graduate. 

The goal is to increase the number of regional high school graduates hired to local STEM-related Hot Jobs (jobs that are in high demand and have a path to a family-sustaining salary) across industries by creating a single hub connecting accurate, inspiring career information from regional businesses and education to students and their parents. This initial platform includes careers in Technology, Manufacturing, Healthcare, Trades and more. 

Employers: email stemvista@newtonsroad.org to link your business to the careers you hire!
