LANSING – Job seekers and Michigan employers can connect with each other through a state-sponsored virtual career fair on Wednesday, May 21 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
MiVirtualCareerFairs, a tool of Pure Michigan Talent Connect, bring together Michigan employers and talent from across the state and the globe in an online, virtual environment.
“With more than 70,000 jobs currently posted on the Pure Michigan Talent Connect website, MiVirtualCareerFairs are another innovative tool to connect employers with qualified talent, and job seekers with job opportunities and career development resources,” said Amy Cell, senior vice president for talent enhancement at the Michigan Economic Development Corporation. “Since the first virtual career fair in February of 2012, more than 122 employers and more than 16,700 job seekers have been connected through the state’s 11 virtual events.”
There’s no cost for job seekers to participate. Registration information can be found at www.mitalent.org/virtualcareerfair. During virtual events, job seekers can explore customized employer booths, interact one-on-one with participating employers and search and apply for job opportunities. In addition, job seekers can access information about career development programs and resources in the Pure Michigan Talent Connect booth. All job openings posted during the events are accessible to participants for 30 days after event. Post-event, employers receive in-depth analytics including candidate resumes, applications, chat transcripts, and booth visit data, which further solidify connections made during the event.
Jobs with 30 Michigan employers will be featured at the May 21 event, making it the second largest to date.
