Overview

Michigan takes its name from the Indian word for "great or large lake." An apt name as Michigan, which borders four of the five Great Lakes, has the longest freshwater shoreline in the world. Perhaps, not surprisingly, it also has the most boat registrations in the country. Recreation on the state’s waterways has taken a back seat to the state’s struggling economy of late, but with the many large and mid-sized cities, medical assistants are flourishing. The state ranks in the top 10 for job openings in the field.
