Michigan Works! Job Fair Draws More Than 80, Connects Employers and Job Seekers
More than 80 people attended the Job Fair at Traverse City Michigan Works! on February 2nd. The event gained notoriety because employer representatives were on hand to conduct interviews for available professional jobs in manufacturing, food production, and natural resources. Most of these positions required a college degree with salaries ranging from $30,000-$75,000 per year.
"It was a great event and I know that the eighty-plus job seekers that attended took away something important--whether it was a job interview, a résumé critique, tools on using the Talent Bank, an informational interview, the opportunity to network, or a better understanding of and motivation to utilize employment services at Michigan Works," said Jan Warren, Northwest Michigan Works! program director.
Our Township greatly benefits from Network Northwest's experience, depth of knowledge and understanding. Because they work with so many diverse communities in our ten-county region they understand the local land-use issues and are already working on solutions by the time we realize we need some help.Susan Odom, Chair, Suttons Bay Township Planning Commission
