Prospective candidates will be seeking both full- and part-time positions, as well as internship opportunities.
Past ESD Job Fairs have been attended by hundreds of qualified engineering, IT, high-tech and skilled trades workers. Companies seeking employees at earlier ESD Job Fairs have praised the level of education, experience and qualifications of attendees.
“We know that the high-tech economy in Michigan has flipped from having a shortage of jobs only a few years ago to having a shortage of talent today,” said Robert Magee, interim executive vice president of ESD. “We can help companies and organizations fill open positions with qualified staff through our Job Fairs.”
