The Employer Engagement Menu (EEM) provides a list of suggested Work-Based Learning activities arranged along a continuum. Employers can view the amount of time and staffing each activity may require. This resource can be used to help schools and industry collaborate to provide opportunities for students to prepare for their future careers.
