Oakland County Michigan Works! hosting two virtual job fairs in April


 

Oakland County Michigan Works! will be hosting two virtual job fairs this month, featuring a broad range of career opportunities in a variety of industries. Participation is free, but job seekers must register in advance.

Oakland County Michigan Works! held its first virtual job fair last September with a second in January. Combined, the two online events drew 70 employers and more than 1,000 participants to fill thousands of jobs. The technology platform being used to conduct the virtual job fairs is being provided by the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity’s Office of Employment and Training.

“Our economic rebound from the COVID-19 pandemic rests on getting as many people back to work as possible,” said Oakland County Executive David Coulter. “Many are returning to their previous jobs but, for those who want to purse new career opportunities, these large job fairs present a wide range of opportunities. And the virtual format allows employers and job seekers to meet one-on-one in a safe environment.”

The first virtual job fair takes place on Wednesday, April 14, and features two sessions:
