Ann Arbor SPARK - College Connections, Resources for Young Michigan Talent

Fall has arrived in all its glory, and with it, Michigan’s Colleges and Universities are rockin’. I wanted to give everyone a quick update on our programs to keep fresh talent in Michigan.

We continue to get very strong website traffic to our new student resources portal, College Connections. Thanks for promoting this resource to your students! http://www.annarborusa.org/career-services/college-connections/

For students that want to stay in Michigan after graduation, College Connections is a must see for entry-level job and internship seekers. We have almost 200 companies listed and we invite other companies to join the charge to keep talent in Michigan. To be included in this list, companies need to regularly hire college graduates into professional positions and/or offer internships.

We’re always looking for new ideas and are very open to your suggestions, as we want to help you to provide great, local career options for your students.
