Last month, more than 25 Consumers Energy employee volunteers visited Michigan schools to spread the word that Consumers Energy is a good place to work and start a career.
As part of the Consumers Energy on Campus program, volunteers visited Michigan State University, University of Michigan, Western Michigan University, Michigan Technological University, Wayne State University and Delta College.
They also visited middle schools and high schools in Alma, Grand Rapids, Jackson, Lansing, Muskegon, Oak Park, Kalamazoo and Saginaw as part of the company’s program, which educates students about energy safety, career opportunities, affordable and reliable energy and energy efficiency.
It targets students enrolled in science, technology, engineering and math classes. More than 3,000 students received information about Consumers Energy on Campus.
“Investing in youth now pays off years later,” said Mattie McKinney, Consumers Energy’s corporate diversity director. “We’re teaching students about our company and industry, so that we can attract them as employees in the future and have better relationships with them when they become our customers.”
