Keeping Talent Local
Bradley Kittel, who recently graduated from Michigan State University’s Applied Engineering Sciences program, finished school with something not many grads are used to these days: a job. And Bradley wouldn’t have landed his job in greater Lansing without the Capital Area Manufacturing Council, an industry cluster council of Capital Area Michigan Works!.
Like many students, Bradley attended an engineering expo and career fair through MSU where he connected with Michelle Cordano, executive director of the Capital Area Manufacturing Council. Michelle shared his resume with local employers, and Bradley soon got a call to interview with Dowding Industries in Eaton Rapids. Read full story.
Bradley also appeared on the Business Beat with Chris Holman.
