Increased Focus On Apprenticeships Good For Workforce

They may not be occupations that readily come to mind as candidates for apprenticeships, but they're among a myriad of possibilities that Evelyn Szpliet, the Northwest Michigan Works! new point person on apprenticeships, is happy to help employers consider. "This opportunity offers employers in every industry the tool to develop a highly-skilled workforce, to help their businesses grow," said Szpliet, who started in January in her new position as apprenticeship success coordinator. "The apprenticeship plans are completely employer-driven, and customizable to their needs."
