The Motor City and the Mitten State: Cracking the code for a #BrighterFuture

Categories: Blog Features,Comeback State,Jobs,Reinventing MI

Good news continues to roll in for Michigan and Detroit, except this time it isn’t just being driven by the auto industry or manufacturing.  Recognizing the changes occurring in America’s economy, Michigan has reinvented itself under Republican leadership as a state that welcomes these new and growing industries – and as a result, both the Comeback City and the Comeback State have made a top 10 list for the tech industry.

According to the Detroit Free Press and a study done by Virginia-based CEB, Detroit is one of the top 10 cities for emerging tech talent and Michigan is among the 10 best states for emerging tech jobs.

In fact, a report from the Workforce Intelligence Network in Crain’s Detroit Business showed that tech jobs were the second-largest source for job postings in southeast Michigan, behind only retail and hospitality jobs.

Creating a brighter future for both Detroit and Michigan as a whole means doing new things instead of the same old, same old that failed in the past.  Now, both are moving forward and embracing new and growing industries in an effort to bring jobs back to our state.
