Take your career to the next level and gain additional experience as a Young Professional!

Michigan Economic Developers Association's Young Professionals group (MEDAYP) is seeking a dedicated group of Mentees for its Get Hired for a Day Pilot Program. The program will be designed to allow Mentors to select or "hire" a young professional for a day, with the pairing based on shared interests.

Through the program, young professionals engaged in economic development will have the opportunity to spend time with a Mentor, networking and learning about the job market and economic development in Michigan. This volunteer program is intended to be mutually beneficial and foster long-term relationships.


Mentees must be a member of the MEDA. If currently not a member and interested in participating, join here.
