Get Hired for a Day Program

Get Hired for MenteesMEDA's Emerging Leaders Network is seeking Mentors and Mentees for the Get Hired for a Day Program. The program allows Mentors to select or “hire” an emerging leader for a day, with a pairing based on shared interests.

Through the program, emerging leaders with an active interest in a career in economic development will have the opportunity to spend time with a Mentor, learning about economic development in Michigan. Early-career economic developers can explore other areas within the field to gain a better understanding of how to create successful partnerships with them. The goal of this volunteer program is to be mutually beneficial for both parties and to foster long-term relationships.

Why Participate?

Benefits of participating for the Mentor:

  • Renews enthusiasm for the economic development profession
  • Obtain a greater understanding of the different challenges and barriers experienced with emerging leaders entering the economic development profession
  • Enhances skills in coaching, counseling, listening, and leadership
  • Demonstrates expertise and shares knowledge of the core economic development competencies
  • Helps identify and correct generational issues
  • Because it is our duty to help the next generational workforce!  

Benefits of participating for the Mentee:

  • Gain career development opportunities
  • Help with the transition to a full-time career
  • Opportunity to share new and different perspectives
  • Be inspired to pursue a career in economic development
  • Get a better understanding of what additional knowledge, skills or training is needed to pursue a career in economic development

You Get a Coupon!

Because it is important to further introduce emerging leaders to the profession and reward Mentors for their time, all Mentor and Mentee participants will get a coupon to attend one of our day programs - Capitol Day, either Toolbox or the Emerging Leaders Spring Program. The coupon can also be used for a discount off of the Annual Meeting or the Economic Development Basic Course.

Who Can Participate

Anyone with an active interest in an economic development career can participate. Typical candidates include - but are not limited to - college students or those in the early stages of their career in economic development that want a better feel for work in other areas of the industry.
