Flint & Genesee Chamber Seeks Employers for Job Fair

FLINT – Employers looking to fill entry-level positions will have the opportunity to recruit from hundreds of qualified candidates at the next Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce Job Fair, to be held April 22 at Baker College in Flint.

“The event will be attended by alumni of TeenQuest and Career Edge – both Chamberadministered training programs that focus on financial literacy, workplace readiness and soft skills (e.g., goal setting and conflict resolution).

“This isn’t your typical job fair,” said Rhetta Hunyady, Vice President of Education & Training at the Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce. “The job applicants have spent a considerable amount of time learning about what it takes to be a standout employee. And they’re ready to put their new skills to work.”

Prior to the invitation-only event, Chamber staff will review job seeker applications and schedule interviews based on mutual interests and opportunities. Applicants who cannot attend the job fair can also submit resumes, which will be routed to companies that may have employment opportunities based on their career pathways.

Employers must register by April 1 to participate. To register, apply online.

While the April 22 job fair is designed for job seekers 18 years and older, a second job fair will be held for TeenQuest alumni ages 14-19 on April 23. As part of the Summer Youth Initiative (SYI) program, participating employers are matched with the teens for 10 weeks during the summer.

Businesses and nonprofits interested in participating in SYI can request a private meeting and review of their draft proposal by contacting Paula Stainbrook at 810-600-1413. The SYI RFP deadline is March 28. – G.G.
