Michigan Job Growth

The Michigan job market is on the rebound –are you ready to be a part of it?

The U.S. economy has seen long-term job growth that started when the Great Recession ended.1 And Michigan is among the states seeing some double-digit improvements. From 2014 to 2015, the State’s unemployment rate dropped by a whopping 26.4 percent and 2015 marks the 6th year in a row that unemployment has fallen.2

Whether you’re looking for new employment or advancement at your current company, this could be your chance to grab a piece of that growth. Check out these industries that have added jobs since 2014.2 Do you have the career training to join in on the economic upturn?

Business & Finance: If want to build a business career, you’ll need a solid understanding of such concepts and principles as accounting, payroll, project management, marketing and human resource management. You’ll also need to understand effective business communication and how to present your entire skillset to your future employer. 

Administrative Support: Behind the people who run American businesses are a huge workforce of administrative and executive assistants, office managers, bookkeepers, payroll processors, sales associates and more. You’ll need a full understanding of how modern businesses run and training on the latest office technologies if you’re going to be an important member of a business team.

Michigan should see a 24.3 percent employment increase from 2010 to 2020 in healthcare support professionals.3 If you want to work in a respected profession where what you do can really make a difference, train for a healthcare career.
