DETROIT – Let’s Detroit and the Detroit Regional Chamber are supporting a virtual career expo for those looking for jobs in Detroit on Monday, Oct. 11, from 4-6 p.m. Employers have a considerable need for talent amid critical labor shortages, and this virtual event will serve to connect eager job-seeking Michiganders with promising career opportunities in Detroit.
The virtual career expo will be hosted on the Brazen platform. The event is free, but registration is required.
“As Michigan’s economy rebounds, employers have a significant need for talent to solidify continued growth,” said Greg Handel, vice president of Education and Talent at the Detroit Regional Chamber, who oversees the Let’s Detroit initiative. “This virtual event makes connecting our state’s robust talent with top employers and career opportunities more accessible.”
The expo follows successful events in November 2020 and May 2021, during which Let’s Detroit partnered with state and regional partners to highlight career opportunities in the region. Virtual attendees can look forward to connecting with a growing list of top employers in industries including finance, accounting, IT, supply chain, health care, communications, marketing, and STEM. Those interested in participating and viewing the complete list of employers can register for free here.
