DAEDA introduces new magazine centered on career, technical education

IRON MOUNTAIN –With the goal of attracting and retaining prospective employees to the Dickinson County area, the Dickinson Area Economic Development Alliance Talent and Education Taskforce recently launched a career and technical education magazine, Next-Level Career.

The magazine is for students, teachers, educators, or anyone interested in pursuing a career path through Dickinson-Iron Intermediate School District and Bay College West programs.

“This publication was modeled after the annual CTE Magazine published by the Career and Technical Education Committee-Marquette and Alger Counties,” said Lois Ellis, director of the alliance. “We are grateful for their support in expanding this format to the Dickinson Area.”

Those interested can find information on the value of career and technical education, career opportunities, testimonials from current students, helpful links and videos, early college and dual enrollment, and more in this new publication.

The Next-Level Career magazine was made possible by Bay College West, the DAEDA, DIISD, Mountain Media House, Lake Superior Community Partnership, Northern Michigan University and U.P. Michigan Works!

The Next-Level Career magazine is available on the alliance’s website, daeda.org.

The Dickinson Area Economic Development Alliance works to stimulate economic development in the Dickinson County area. The alliance joins business, industry, education, government and community organizations to grow the region’s economy by retaining, recruiting and growing talent for the employer base as well as promoting business retention and expansion, government relations and advocacy, and infrastructure and housing development.
