Employer Webinar Series by GTRI

At a time when Michigan’s economy is diversifying and growing, finding the talent needed to keep up with the surge in the demand for highly educated applicants has been difficult for many employers. This is especially the case for the IT and engineering sectors. Since more than 50% of the PhDs and sometimes as much as 40% of the Masters degrees in these fields are awarded to international students each year, we will continue to have difficulty filling these positions if we don’t consider all qualified applicants (domestic and foreign) in our recruiting strategy.
