LANSING — Job seekers and employers can connect with each other in a live virtual environment through a MiVirtualCareerFair career networking event hosted by the State of Michigan, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 25 at michiganvirtualcareerfair.com/index.php/
“There are more than 60,000 jobs currently available in various industries on the Pure Michigan Talent Connect website, which connects Michigan employers to qualified talent as well as provides resources for job seekers,” said Joe Quick, Manager of Talent Programs, Michigan Economic Development Corporation.
MiVirtualCareerFair allows employers to connect with top talent and gives job seekers the opportunity to apply for dozens of available positions without the inconvenience and expense of traditional job fairs. Since the first MiVirtualCareerFair event in February 2012, more than 90 employers and more than 10,000 job seekers have been connected.
Within MiVirtualCareerFair, employers host exhibitor booths that include links to job postings, company profiles, employee benefits, and employer contact information, and allow job seekers to communicate one-on-one with company representatives. Post-event, employers receive in-depth analytics including candidate resumes, applications, chat transcripts, and booth visit data. All job openings posted during the fair will be accessible to participants for 30 days after the live event.
These employers will take part in the September MiVirtualCareerFair: Advanced Physical Therapy Center, Auto-Owners Insurance, Cochrane Supply, Edgewater Automation, GC Services, Genemarkers, General Electric, Grid Logic, Inc., Hope Network, Lyons Industries, Microline Technology Corporation, New York Life Insurance Company, Securitas Security Services USA, Inc., State of Michigan, Stout Systems, TechSmith Corporation and Van Loon Industries, Inc.
