The talent portal features these opportunities:

*Companies can apply to host an intern. Some programs provide 50 to 100 percent reimbursement of an intern’s salary.
* A jobs portal allows interns, job seekers and companies to post opportunities and apply for openings.
* Professionals in transition can learn about the Michigan Shifting Gears program. The next session starts July 12.
*Experienced professionals can apply to mentor TechTown startups or Shifting Gears program participants.
