Get up to 80 hours of talented pro bono internships for your company
May 25, 2012
Michigan Shifting Gears (MiSG) is a three month program that helps highly experienced, educated and talented people undergoing a career transition find new opportunities with smaller, innovative companies. The purpose of the program is to help displaced professionals learn new ways to frame their value in the workplace and develop networks – thus opening new doors to job opportunities, and allowing Michigan to retain key talent for growing employers. To learn more about the program, please visit the website.
As part of the MiSG program, participants provide 80 hours of pro bono service to a company. The current cohort began on April 30; the internship talent connection is on Thursday, May 31 from 3 – 5 pm, with internships beginning on June 4th. As part of the internship portion of the program, an ‘internship talent connection’ will be held at Regional Host Partner locations, which include Prima Civitas for the Lansing region. This event provides an opportunity to meet with participants one on one to discuss your company / projects. Attending a talent connection event is not required but is recommended to increase your chances of connecting with a Michigan Shifting Gears participant for your project. Following the event, companies and MiSG participants directly connect and work out details and ensure proper fit. You can register your company/project here.
