Talent Tours Help Students Learn About Local Businesses
Students from the Char-Em ISD Career and Technical Education Welding Program in East Jordan went on Talent Tours at two local businesses. The 12 students, including two from the Jobs for Michigan’s Graduates (JMG) program, visited Aster Brands and Harbor Industries in Charlevoix. Talent Tours give students a chance to learn about local businesses and career opportunities. Aster Brands is a sales, marketing, and intellectual property business that invents products for the concrete manufacturing space. Harbor Industries Inc. is a full-service manufacturer of point of purchase displays and store fixturing. The Talent Tours were coordinated by Northwest Michigan Works! and the Char-Em ISD.
Our Township greatly benefits from Network Northwest's experience, depth of knowledge and understanding. Because they work with so many diverse communities in our ten-county region they understand the local land-use issues and are already working on solutions by the time we realize we need some help.
