Portal Offers Career Information
LANSING — The Michigan Department of Career Development has announced its new online career and job information Web site, the Michigan Career Portal.
The site, located at www.michigan.gov/careers, features online access to the Michigan Occupational Information System (MOIS) with its more than 400 complete MOIS scripts, each providing comprehensive information on an occupation, including education requirements, employment outlook, duties, wages and links to other relevant sources.
“This site combines a number of career-related resources, including job fairs,” said John Palmer, deputy director for workforce programs at the MDCD. “Information on career education, places to look for a job and a listing of job fairs by sponsor are all combined in one location.”
The Michigan Career Portal site is divided into six main selections, job seekers, employers, students and parents, education and training, support services and online resources.
Job seekers can access the Michigan talent bank to post a resume and view job postings free of charge as well as to file an unemployment claim online.
Additional resources include information on local Michigan Works! service centers, employment trends, tips on interviewing, how to write a resume and other topics of interest.
Employers may choose to access the Talent Bank to view resumes and post job openings free of charge, use the BeeFreeway online courses and gather information from state, federal and commercial Web sites.
Students and parents can use the MOIS information on occupations and resources, plus information on apprenticeships, careers in the military, how to get ready for college, occupational opportunity trends, colleges, standardized tests and various other topics.
