Albion knows that developing and educating a skilled and dependable workforce is the key to success in today's business environment. That's why we're working overtime to find creative solutions to workforce development issues.

Michigan's Talent Bank

The Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) is working to use technology to bring employers and job seekers together. Michigan Works! has assembled thousands of resumes online. The database also allows employers to post job openings on the internet. Explore this new and exciting service - Michigan's Talent Bank.
College Internships
One of the distinct advantages of having Albion College in the heart of our community is instant access to 1,600 bright, creative, and motivated young men and women. The liberal arts program taught at Albion not only exposes students to new ideas and ways of thinking; it also prepares them to be effective communicators and leaders in their chosen professions. This benefits not only the students, but the entire community.

The business community benefits as well, because Albion's strength lies in its ability to provide a humanistic, liberal-arts education and at the same time give its students valuable experience and pre-professional instruction. As a component of this, the College heavily promotes internships, especially through the Gerald R. Ford Institute for Public Policy and Service and the Carl A. Gerstacker Institute for Professional Management.

Since the 1990s, scores of Albion College students have interned with Albion-area businesses, non-profits, or other institutions. Interest continues to grow on campus, so contact the EDC or Albion College for more information.

Special Job Training Programs
Job training grants are available on a competitive basis from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation. The training can teach employees new technical skills, process improvements, teamwork, and more.

School-to-Work
Albion EDC worked with the Albion Public Schools and the Albion Business and Education Partnership to improve school-to-work programs. By working with educators at the elementary and secondary levels, the Albion EDC is developing the resources that help make Albion The Smart Community®.
