This week Consumers Energy and DTE Energy collaborated together to expose students in West Michigan to careers in the energy industry. Here to talk to us more about this effort is Roger Morgenstern with Consumers Energy and David Herr from DTE.

In its fifth year, Careers in Energy Week will provide hands-on opportunities for students to learn about career possibilities in a growing industry. More than 108,000 Michigan residents hold energy-related jobs today, and the Michigan Workforce Development Agency estimates energy jobs will grow by 6 percent through 2026.

Careers in Energy Week helps feed the talent pipeline for jobs in the growing energy industry. Energy providers have hired over 2,500 new employees into energy careers since January 2017, and up to 1,000 internship and co-op students.
