Over 70 companies and organizations set up booths to attract talent at Northern Michigan’s Largest Hiring Event at The Ellison Place in Gaylord, MI on Saturday, March 9, 2019.
This year’s event brought in over 330 job seekers from all over the state looking for employment. Over 400 full time, part time, seasonal apprenticeship, and professional placement employment opportunities were available for candidates to peruse with the possibility of being hired on the spot.
Since its inception, companies have had great success in hiring new talent. Renee Santina attended the Hiring Event in 2018 as a job seeker. She connected well with the team at Magna Lexamar Corporation, and was offered and accepted a full-time position as Executive Assistant helping with recruiting. This year, Renee was one of the employees who got to man the Magna booth and interview individuals who were in her shoes just one year ago.
Not only does this hiring event showcase a wide array of industries from healthcare, manufacturing, hospitality, and more, it also prepares individuals to enter the workforce. Job seekers leave the event with improved interview skills, knowledge of reputable companies in northern Michigan, and many connections.
Northern Michigan’s Largest Hiring Event is a partnership event brought to you by North Central Michigan College, Northern Lakes Economic Alliance, The Ellison Place, MacDonald Garber Broadcasting, Mitchell Graphics, Northwest Michigan Works!, Michigan Works! Northeast Consortium, and Michigan Works! UPward.
