DETROIT (May 13) – With Michigan hitting the first “Vacc to Normal” milestone of 55%, the demand for workers in the state is high. In an effort to help connect employers to eager Michiganders looking for opportunities in Detroit, Let’s Detroit announces a virtual career expo on May 24th. The expo follows a successful career event in November 2020, where Let’s Detroit partnered with state and regional partners to highlight career opportunities in the region.

The Let’s Detroit virtual career expo will help jobseekers connect with top employers in the Detroit region. The event takes places May 24, from 4-6 p.m., and will use the Brazen platform. The event is free, but registration is required.

“This virtual event provides a new platform to help individuals interested in relocating to the Detroit region and local job seekers by connecting them directly to major employers who are looking for talent,” said Greg Handle, vice president of Education and Talent at the Detroit Regional Chamber, who oversees the Let’s Detroit initiative.

Participants can look forward to connecting with organizations including Bosch, Citizens, Consumers Energy, Cooper Standard, Ford Motor Company, Kelly Services, Kroger, Magna, Meritor, ITC, and Rocket Mortgage. Featured industries and sectors include finance, accounting, IT, supply chain, health care, communications, marketing, and STEM fields. Those interested in participating and viewing the complete list of employers can register for free here.
