Update on Blair Milo’s new position with Governor Holcomb
Blair Milo says she has always been motivated to solve complex challenges. In her new role as Secretary of Career Connections and Talent, the former La Porte mayor is getting a chance to do just that. Governor Eric Holcomb named Milo to the newly-created, cabinet level position in July, and already she says she sees the enormity of the challenge and views communication as an immediate priority. “Engaging our partners and ensuring we are communicating across the board,” said Milo, who calls talent a “premier issue,” in particular, matching the right people with the right opportunities. “Utilizing the data that is already being collected by the Department of Workforce Development, growing some of that information and tailoring it to what the community needs are specifically.” During a statewide launch of the jobs initiative, Governor Holcomb said with the state’s unemployment rate hovering around three percent, there are currently nearly 100,000 job openings throughout Indiana.
