Auburn Hills Chamber of Commerce partners with Intern in Michigan

To further the connection between the five colleges and universities within Auburn Hills, and area employers looking to attract and develop talent, the Auburn Hills Chamber of Commerce, a dynamic organization focused on connecting a world-class business community, has partnered with Intern in Michigan to help bridge the gap. 
 
Intern in Michigan is a free, new statewide system which synthesizes all open internship opportunities into one efficient web-based tool.  Most of Auburn Hills’ local academic institutions, including Oakland Community College and Baker College, participate in the program.  Intern in Michigan incorporates a matching algorithm to integrate targeted profile data gathered from both students and employers.  Internship candidates are matched with organizations based on their individual interests and skill sets.  Meanwhile, employers are matched with the students who are best suited to their organization.  The service is now featured on the Chamber’s website for easy access, www.auburnhillschamber.com. 
 
“The support of Intern in Michigan aligned with the Chamber’s longstanding commitment to strengthening the partnerships between our educational and business stakeholders,” said Denise Asker, Executive Director of the Auburn Hills Chamber of Commerce.  “We introduced the portal to our community as part of the Chamber’s workforce development initiatives, which includes our 2012 Talent Townhall program, our own robust internship program, and the dynamic work of our Education Committee,” she said.  
 
The Auburn Hills Chamber of Commerce works closely with civic, business, cultural and educational stakeholders to enrich and connect the people and organizations within our world-class business community.  The Chamber represents more than 250 diverse organizations and offers a variety of relationship-driven events including the Auburn Hills Open…Fore Business, the Taste of Auburn Hills, Excellence in Education, Talent Townhall, our Corporate Golf League,  keynote presentations, community events, and educational programming.   To learn more, contact info@auburnhillschamber or visit www.auburnhillschamber.com.
