Shift Gears to Find a New Career

Are you out of work or thinking about a new career? Stop thinking and start doing! Michigan Shifting Gears is a career-transition program for seasoned corporate professionals who want to pursue opportunities in business growth sectors where they can leverage their business knowledge and experience in new ways.

Participants in Michigan Shifting Gears receive professional career assessment and career coaching, attend eight days of workshops and networking events, and take part in a three-day small business simulation. Each student is paired with a volunteer mentor from the entrepreneurial community who works one-on-one to help them improve their small business skills and communicate effectively during the hiring process. Each participant also must complete an 80-hour pro bono internship with a small, early-stage Michigan business.
