The summit is intended to help Michigan Workforce Offices to explore the industry growth trends of 2016-2026 and learn about labor force projections, employment projections, job openings, segment growth and entry-level educational requirements.
The Summit will address the current employment trends in the state of Michigan by industry, including anticipated high growth professions and current wage data for area occupations. The participants will also engage in practical workshops on how to mine the BLS database and how to maximize the impact of government funding with stackable certifications credentials.
"I am excited to work with our state and education industry partners by providing data on occupational and industry trends that can help direct decisions on retraining," said Cassandra Wirth - U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics (BLS) Economist and Summit's guest speaker.
The Michigan Industry Growth Summit is the first in the series of similar events slated to take place throughout the United States with the goal of reducing unemployment rates and staffing high growth markets with qualified employees.
