Michigan Matters: Where Are The Jobs And Internships For Students

Where are the jobs and internships for high school and college students?

That is the focus of “Michigan Matters” airing 11:30 am this Sunday on CBS 62 as four experts in jobs and talent appear with Carol Cain, Senior Producer/Host of the show, to discuss the situation.

“There’s a big disconnect right now between real jobs and what young people are interested in,” said Lisa Katz, of WIN of Southeast Michigan.

Katz is working with community colleges and other organizations trying to address the talent gap not only today but tomorrow.
She appears with Pamela Moore, who just took over as president of Detroit Public Schools Foundation.

Chris Holman, who runs Michigan’s Business Network and is the former small business czar of Michigan, talked about the huge gap today for many employers who cannot find the talent they need.

And Jennifer Nelson, of MEDC, talked about what the state is doing to address the current situation with over 70,000 jobs open in Michigan.

All four leaders offered ideas on where students can go to look for internships.
