"The Pure Michigan Talent Connect website can help workers find jobs, match companies with job seekers, and help individuals who are looking for a career change."

Residents may visit the Pure Michigan Talent Connect website at The site offers three key sections for visitors trying to find a job, employers looking to hire and workers exploring new career and educational options.

The Career Matchmaker and Career Investment Calculator are designed to help individuals identify the industries that are in need of their job skills and calculate the value of additional training for a new career.
