Updates from Ann Arbor SPARK

Summer Solstice is quickly approaching and with that Michigan's many lakes are warming - much to the delight of beach goers everywhere! With summer's arrival, thoughts of internships and entry-level jobs for Michigan's newest graduates move to fore. This summer, there's an exciting new student resource in place, known as Intern In Michigan! Also, be sure to have your graduates keep watch of small, emerging tech-based companies in Michigan. The best way to learn more about these companies (and to see who's hiring, for what, and where!) is to check out the Services section on the SPARK website at Career Services at Ann Arbor SPARK.

Throughout Michigan, no other job fair has attracted as many schools, graduates and companies at one time, in one day as demonstrated in MCJF's history. http://www.mcjf.org/index.php.
