LANSING, Mich. -- The Michigan Department of Technology, Management & Budget (DTMB) presented the latest long-term regional employment projections to a virtual audience of state policymakers and education and workforce development professionals at the 2021 Michigan Occupational Outlook Conference. Based on the projections, the "Regional Career Outlook" publications provide information for careers that will be in the highest demand by education group through 2028 in Michigan.

"The information compiled in these lists is invaluable to students and jobseekers alike as they make decisions about their futures," said Scott Powell, director of DTMB's Bureau of Labor Market Information and Strategic Initiatives. "It is our goal to provide our education and workforce development partners with the information they need to help Michiganders find their path to high-demand, high-wage jobs."

The 10 Regional Career Outlook publications feature high-demand jobs based on education level and the top jobs in STEM careers, those occupations with a science, technology, engineering, or math background. The fourth annual Michigan Occupational Outlook Conference virtually brought together representatives from education, state government, the Legislature, and workforce development to learn about the information available to them and how it is developed.

More statistical information about Michigan's economy, labor force, population and more is available at Michigan.gov/lmi or through the MiEconomy app available for iOS and Android.
