SOUTHFIELD — It’s a sign of a recovering economy and Michigan’s status as the engineering and tech center of the world.
The Engineering Society of Detroit says an amazing 3,000-plus jobs will be available to applicants at the 2014 ESD Fall Job Fair, being held Monday, Nov. 10 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi.
More than 55 companies will be offering the positions at the event, which runs from 2 to 7 p.m.
Among the positions up for grabs will be some seriously cool jobs – helping to build the Detroit Red Wings’ next arena, working on battery technology for greener cars, helping create the latest in voice recognition technology, and working on the mobile entertainment of the future.
“The numbers don’t lie, and these numbers say Michigan is the nation’s No. 1 spot for engineering jobs — and engineering talent,” said Robert Magee, ESD interim executive director. “We’re looking forward to our busiest and best-ever Fall Job Fair next week.”
The ESD Job Fair offers positions to engineers of all types, scientists, and people in related technical fields, from IT to the increasingly high-tech, energy-efficient building trades. Sales, administrative and financial positions will also be offered. Many of the jobs don’t require a four-year college degree, but some technical background is generally required.
