Chief Executive Officer
The CEO is responsible for providing the strategic, financial, and executive leadership of the MEDC, a public body corporate, and is accountable for leading the State of Michigan’s economic development efforts, including business, community, and economic policy development. Under the direction of the MEDC Executive Committee, the CEO will exercise a high degree of independence, initiative, ethics, and professional expertise in the active efforts to attract, expand, enhance and retain business and commerce in Michigan, preserve and effectuate community vitality, and market the State’s business, community, and travel/tourism assets at the local, national, and international level.
Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) is comprised of two types of employees: State of Michigan government positions and MEDC corporation positions. The application process for each is slightly different, but we are looking for the same thing: dedicated, innovative, talented candidates interested in supporting the success of Michigan.
All MEDC State of Michigan positions are posted and processed through the State’s recruiting system, NEOGOV. The job posting on our site will direct you to the NEOGOV link where you can apply. To apply for a position with the MEDC corporation, please respond to an open opportunity by submitting your resume, cover letter, and completed Employment Application Form to email@example.com.
When a job posting closes, applications are read by real humans who are both experts in interpreting resumes and are familiar with the competencies and skills needed for these opportunities. To ensure we maintain a fair and open competitive selection and evaluation process, Human Resources works with hiring managers to review and complete their evaluation based on position related screening criteria. In order to comply with Civil Service Rules and Regulations, certain candidates applying for State of Michigan positions may also be subject to go through an additional credentialing/qualification process with the Civil Service Commission.
Our competency-based interviewing process is intended to help us provide equal employment opportunities and help minimize unconscious bias, while also making sure we hire people who will thrive at the MEDC. The standard interview process that MEDC practices is a panel interview consisting of a hiring manager, outside team members and/or external partners focusing on competency and behavioral based job-related questions. A second or third round interview may be conducted if necessary.
Once a hiring decision has been made, Human Resources conducts additional pre-employment checks on the preferred candidate. This includes detailed reference checks. To help us expedite the process, please make sure to include adequate references with your application materials. In addition to references, all job offers are also contingent upon passing a drug screen and criminal background check.
If we receive positive references, Human Resources will reach out to extend a conditional offer of employment. A letter of acceptance with salary and employment information will be provided. At this time, the candidate will be informed of the requirement to undergo a drug screen and background check and will coordinate with Human Resources to ensure that these are completed in the required timeframe. When Human Resources receives confirmation of successful pre-checks, we will reach out to confirm the offer and to determine the best date for you to begin working with us.
Congratulations! We’re happy to welcome you to the MEDC team. Your first day will consist of orientation with Human Resources and other organizational teams like finance and IT to help you with logistics. Onboarding will continue over the next several months within your individual team and in concert with organizational meetings, activities and other available resources.
