Milwaukee hasn’t always been on Wayne State University senior Juhie Mehta’s radar.

Cristy Garcia-Thomas, chief external affairs officer for Advocate Aurora Health, speaks to a group of students from Midwestern colleges who are touring the city this week.

When it comes to finding a job after college, the 21-year-old Detroit area native said it’s easy to be drawn to larger metros.

“You think of bigger cities, Chicago, New York, San Francisco,” Mehta said. “Milwaukee, I think, is kind of an underdog. It’s not very recognized.”

But this week, Mehta is one of about 20 college students visiting the city, open to learning about what it can offer them professionally and recreationally.

Advocate Aurora Health is hosting the students, utilizing NEWaukee’s Make it in Milwaukee program, which provides college students from several Midwestern schools with a free, three-day trip to Milwaukee to tour the city and learn about Advocate Aurora’s career opportunities.

The program is based on the premise that employers need to sell their potential employees not only on their job opportunities, but also their city. It’s the second year that Aurora Health Care has employed the recruitment tool. Read the full story here.
