2020 Event Update

Given the COVID-19 pandemic, the regional planning team for MiCareerQuest Southeast is actively pursuing a virtual event this fall, on Wednesday, November 18.

We envision students, counselors, teachers and parents across the region to participate in the online event.  Exhibitors in our four career quadrants will be engaging students through interactive, career activities on the virtual platform.  We are working hard to provide a great experience for everyone, including enhancements only possible through such an online event.

It took only two years for MiCareerQuest Southeast to make a strong impact on more than 18,000 students in our region.  We know this year’s virtual event will build on this momentum as our students return to school this fall, eager to learn and looking toward the future.  We look forward to bringing the live event back to southeast Michigan in 2021.

What is MiCareerQuest Southeast?

MiCareerQuest Southeast is the region's largest interactive career exploration event for high school students. It exposes students to a broad range of exciting, rewarding career opportunities as they prepare for their futures!

Thousands of high school students from Oakland, Macomb, Monroe, Wayne, Washtenaw and Livingston counties will be meeting with working professionals who have built successful careers in a variety of fields. In addition, young people will have the opportunity to touch, feel and work with the equipment, tools and technology used by people every day in a broad range of in-demand jobs.

The goal is to connect classroom learning with real-world jobs and their requirements. Students also will discover engaging workplace opportunities, such as internships, job shadowing and more.
