Virtual Talent Tours

Virtual Talent Tours are short videos designed to help young people, parents, teachers, and job seekers learn about in-demand career paths in northwest Michigan. Each of the videos focus on people working in those careers and have them answer some common questions about their jobs.

  • Why did you choose this profession?
  • How did you learn to do this and how long did it take?
  • What do you do every day?
  • What do you like most about your job?

Virtual Talent Tours help young people and job seekers target their career search, identify needed training, and prepare for fields in which they are most likely to find work. The tours help parents, teachers, school counselors, and others support and encourage young people to pursue training opportunities that lead to available, good-paying jobs.

Northwest Michigan Works! is Supported by the State of Michigan and is a proud partner of the American Job Center Network.


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.
