Dan Gilbert: Detroit could use an intern turnaround

Gilbert told about 600 businesspeople from around the state that Quicken Loans Inc. had 8,700 applications from 157 colleges and universities for 600 full-time internships this summer.

In 2013, if major employers coordinated recruiting, “you could have 25,000 interns downtown,” he said.

Young adults want to be in cities, he said, and “Detroit sells itself once you get them here.”
