WEST MICHIGAN EMPLOYERS ARE HIRING!
While in-person hiring events are cancelled until further notice, we offer a variety of virtual events to connect you with employers who are hiring now!
Our virtual hiring events include:
- Monthly Virtual Job Fair featuring multiple employers.
- Virtual Employer of the Day events featuring one employer.
- Virtual Veterans Networking Job Club that connects veterans to employers and other veteran-specific services.
The series of recent events highlighting the routine and perpetual inequities that people of color continue to face have reignited new frustrations about the lack of progress we’ve made in changing systems that perpetuate prejudice, bias and inequity.

Be Counted 2020
April 1, 2020 was Census Day in the U.S., but there is still time to complete this year’s census questionnaire! The census is an important process that helps determine our representation in all levels of government and how much federal funding goes to our communities. In fact, Michigan stands to lose $18,000 per person over the next 10 years due to an inaccurate count.
Everyone can do their part by completing the census questionnaire accurately and completely. Get started!
