Michigan will help immigrant professionals
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Gov. Rick Snyder has announced a partnership designed to help skilled immigrants and refugees living in Michigan integrate into the workforce.
Snyder's office says the program involves the nonprofit group Upwardly Global and the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.
The governor says the department is issuing 10 online guides that explain Michigan's professional licensing requirements for individuals who were educated or have work experience overseas.
His office says the Professional Licensing Guides are directed at people seeking professional employment in accounting, architecture, dentistry, engineering, physical therapy, law, nursing, pharmacy, medicine and teaching.
