“We’re excited to bring this event to such a popular community space in Genesee County,” said James Avery, director of Education & Training at the Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce. “This is a great opportunity for job seekers to meet with employers and community organizations that can help advance their careers.”
According to Avery, participating employers represent a variety of industries, including education, finance, food and beverage, health care, hospitality, manufacturing, retail and transportation.
Some stores from the shopping center will also be accepting resumes.
Additionally, the event will also be attended by agencies and businesses providing a variety of free resources, including interview clothing from 2nd Time Around Consignment and haircuts from Park Place Hair Studio.
Additional community organizations will be on site to discuss employment training, volunteer opportunities and more.
