YOUR EMPLOYMENT PARTNER

Michigan Works! Northeast Consortium is a network of resources, providing FREE EMPLOYMENT SERVICES to improve the region's workforce.

We partner with job seekers to enhance their education, help find employment, and expand career opportunities, and with employers to develop recruiting, training, and retention strategies.

YOUR ONE-STOP SERVICE CENTER

We don't expect our customers to know what federal or state programs are available to them. Qualifications, timelines, and program guidelines can be confusing, so we aim to simplify the complex network of resources for our customers.

Our Michigan Works! service centers offer a welcoming environment where you can meet with staff and receive guidance as to what programs and services are appropriate to meet your needs.
