July Outdoor Job Fairs Connect Employers and Potential Employees

July Outdoor Job Fairs Connect Employers and Potential Employees

When the going gets tough, the tough get going. In our case, we’re going outside… to help our region’s employers fill more than 3,200 (and growing) job openings available in the Great Lakes Bay as the economy continues to re-open.

In mid July, as part of our “Let’s Get Back to Work” initiative, Great Lakes Bay Michigan Works! is hosting a series of outdoor job fairs to offer safe, socially distant, face-to-face (or mask-to-mask) interaction between 30+ employers and jobs seekers. All five events run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.:

Monday, July 13 @ Dow Diamond Parking Lot in Midland

Tuesday, July 14 @ SVRC Pavilion in Saginaw

Wednesday, July 15 @ Wenona Park Pavilion in Bay City

Thursday, July 16 @ Alma High School in Alma

Friday, July 17 @ Island Park West in Mt. Pleasant

Michigan Works! staff indicate that a significant number of job seekers have lost their jobs permanently as a result of COVID-19. Others don’t want to go back to their previous jobs and are looking for a new challenge. We are offering to help freshen up resumes, conduct mock interviews, and help tweak skills to meet the needs of employers.

There’s still time if you’d like to participate. Just reach out to your business services representative or contact Kristen Wenzel at
