Autocam Medical, a global contract manufacturer of precision surgical and medical components and devices, announced today that they will be sponsoring the MiCareerQuest on Wednesday, April 24, 2019.
The career exploration experience for 14 to 19 year old students will be held at the Devos Place Convention Center and will run from 8:30 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. Created in 2015 by area Michigan Works! offices, the Kent ISD, and the Construction Workforce Development Alliance (CWDA) the MiCareerQuest aims to address the growing demand for talent in Construction, Health Sciences, Information Technology, and Manufacturing.
Over 9,000 students are expected to attend the event. They will have the opportunity to engage with professionals and try different activities in the high-growth occupations as they contemplate their future careers. As an employer champion for the event, Autocam Medical will provide students with the opportunity to watch their own initials be laser etched into a key tag, and view leg and arm replicas showing how the company’s components and devices are used. They will also have the opportunity to simulate a doctor’s experience by drilling and screwing components into bone blocks.
“A significant portion of our workforce in the construction, health sciences, information technology, and manufacturing industries will be retiring over the next decade, this is just one of the forward thinking ways that Autocam Medical is helping to stimulate the workforce in those fields,” said Tom O’Mara, Executive Vice President at Autocam.
