GENESEE COUNTY – U.S. Congressman Dan Kildee announced in a press release last week that he will be hosting a job fair on Thursday, October 15 that will bring employers and recruiters to Flint.
The free public event will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Mott Community College Event Center, 1401 E. Court Street.
Various employers will be on hand and some will be conducting interviews and hiring on the spot. The event will also have hiring coaches from the Michigan Workforce Talent Bank to provide career help to job-seekers, including advice on compiling a resume, filling out applications and participating in interviews.
Job seekers are advised to dress professionally, bring resumes and be prepared for on-site interviews.
The job fair is sponsored in partnership with the Michigan Workforce Development Agency, Michigan Works, and Michigan Job Connect.
“I’m excited to host a job fair in Flint so that those looking for work can connect directly with employers looking to hire new workers,” Congressman Kildee said. “It is great to partner with employment agencies as well, who will also be on hand to help ensure that job seekers can get one-on-one advice and best practices when it comes to their resume, filling out job applications, and being interviewed. All are welcome to attend this free and public event.”
A special session of the job fair from 10-11 a.m. will also be dedicated to helping veterans find employment opportunities.
After a brief commemoration ceremony thanking them for their service, the first hour of the event will be limited to veterans only, so that the men and women who have served our country overseas will have a unique opportunity to speak to prospective employers and find job opportunities.
“I’m especially pleased that a specific portion of the job fair will be dedicated to helping our returning service members find good-paying jobs back home,” Congressman Kildee said.
The job fair will open to the general public after the veterans’ hiring hour. No registration is required to participate in the sessions for veterans or the general public, and admission is free.
