Hoosier Jobs Still a Focus of Former Mayor

(Indianapolis, IN) - Change is a good thing for a former elected official from La Porte working for the governor.


Since 2017, Blair Milo has been focused largely on improving Indiana’s workforce to fill job

openings in the future.  The governor has merged her office of Career Connections and Talent with the Indiana Economic Development Corporation.


Milo says her focus is now working more directly with employers to find the workers they need, but she’s still giving attention to providing opportunities for Hoosiers to upgrade their skills to qualify jobs of the future.


“With this integration between the Career Connections and Talent team and the Indiana Economic Development Corporation, we're going to have an opportunity for a lot deeper connections and conversations to be able to help people connect with these growing job opportunities.  And, have the skill sets needed to be able to not only have awareness about the jobs, but have those skills to ensure that individuals are connecting up with these great careers and employers are accessing the talent pool that they need,” she said.


Milo was mayor in La Porte for about six years before becoming a member of the governor’s cabinet in Indianapolis.
