Kahn announces new state website for job seekers
Wednesday, January 11, 2012
LANSING — Sen. Roger Kahn is urging residents of the Great Lakes Bay Region who are looking for a job or considering a career change to visit a new state talent and jobs website.
“While Michigan’s economy is slowly recovering, many people are still out of work or underemployed,” said Kahn, R-Saginaw Township. “The Pure Michigan Talent Connect website is designed to help job seekers. If you are looking for work or considering switching careers, then you should definitely use this great new tool.”
Residents may visit the Pure Michigan Talent Connect website at www.MiTalent.org. The page offers three key sections for visitors trying to find a job, employers looking to hire, and workers exploring new career and educational options. The Career Matchmaker and Career Investment Calculator are designed to help individuals identify which industries are in need of their job skills and calculate the value of additional training for a new career.
Other useful information highlighted on the MiTalent site include materials specific to veterans and entrepreneurs, such as the Pure Michigan Mentor Network, small business resources, Military Skills Translator and veterans job search sites.
“While the economy is slowly recovering, many people are still out of a job or looking to advance their career,” Kahn said. “That is why the state launched the Pure Michigan Talent Connect website. I encourage anyone trying to find a job to visit this useful site today.”
