Gov. Whitmer and the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity announced the launch of a new website to connect Michiganders to careers in electric vehicle (EV) industries. Michiganders should go to this website to learn more about the good-paying careers available in the automotive mobility and electrification industries. This announcement builds on the $5 million investment in the Michigan Electric Vehicle Jobs Academy.

The Michigan Electric Vehicle Jobs Academy is designed to provide Michiganders with tuition assistance and job apprenticeship with high-wage and in-demand careers. With more than 100 partners, including employers, industry stakeholders and education institutions, the EV Jobs Academy is driving the state’s advanced mobility talent development for the future. 

Some of the in-demand careers the EV Jobs Academy prepares Michiganders for include assemblers, electrical engineers and technicians, information security analysts, information technology professionals, maintenance and repair workers, and software developers.  

Michiganders interested in exploring new careers with excellent advancement opportunities are encouraged to go and complete an online interest form so a local EV Jobs Academy partner can contact them and provide details about local resources available to get them connected with career resources and opportunities.  

Industry stakeholders including employers interested in supporting or joining the collaborative are also encouraged to go to this website and complete the online interest form.
