M2 TechCast co-hosts — Mike Brennan, Editor and Publisher of MITechNews.Com, and Matt Roush, ESD Director of Communications and editor of the ESD magazine TechCentury — will be live on the Internet at 3 p.m. to interview both representatives from companies seeking employees and job candidates at the show.

“We’re excited to do our first remote broadcast and to help ESD bring attention to all the IT jobs available in Southeast Michigan today,” said Brennan. “Many of the positions are available immediately, meaning folks could get hired on the spot.”
Added Roush: “ESD’s mission is to keep Michigan the world capital of engineering, and the Job Fair is one of the ways we do it. Michigan’s high-tech economy has come roaring back, and the numbers at the ESD Job Fair show it.”
The Job Fair will be held at the Suburban Collection Showplace at 46100 Grand River Ave. in Novi. The event runs from 2 ot 7 p.m. Registration will begin at 1:30 p.m.
