Sponsors & Exhibitors

We are excited to announce that MiCareerQuest Middle Michigan 2024 will be held Friday, October 11, 2024, at the SVSU Ryder Center. It is sure to be another engaging and safe, hands-on career exploration experience for 10th grade students, teachers, and counselors to learn about today’s high demand jobs from employers like you! MiCareerQuest Middle Michigan 2023 is hosted by Great Lakes Bay Michigan Works! and Michigan Works! Region 7B.

This event is focused on 10th graders (and their teachers, counselors, and career navigators) from an 11-county area including Arenac, Bay, Clare, Gladwin, Gratiot, Isabella, Iosco, Midland, Ogemaw, Roscommon and Saginaw.

The immediate goal is to maximize quality interactions with students to introduce them to career opportunities right here in the middle of Michigan. The long-term goal is to retain them within the region as part of the larger workforce.  We hope you’ll consider being involved in this exciting event – as a sponsor and/or exhibitor. Previous employer participants were energized by the opportunity to proactively impact their future workforce…and to watch kids learn about today’s hottest jobs.

Event Sponsors

MiCareerQuest Middle Michigan cannot take place without generous, much appreciated financial support from businesses and other organizations across the region. Depending on the visibility level you seek for your company, you have several sponsorship levels to choose from.

Thanks for an amazing event!
