What to do when individual job fairs aren’t giving you results

Why not host the largest hiring event ever?

Looking to attract and hire more workers, but frustrated by lack of job fair participation? Why not showcase your statewide industries and offerings to interested job-seekers by participating in or hosting larger hiring events to attract a wider variety of talent and industries to participate.

Often, these events are offered up to employers with discounted early bird rates, and free for prospective hires to attend. The more industries represented, the wider the variety of potential talent. Whether you’re hiring for full time, part time, seasonal, or for apprenticeships and internships, hiring events attract audiences of multiple ages and diverse talent in the hope that all will find what they’re looking for.

MSU Extension has had a unique relationship with the regional economic development organization Northern Lakes Economic Alliance (NLEA) for more than 20 years. Recognizing the strength of combining resources, this partnership focuses on economic development, entrepreneurship growth and community infrastructure throughout a four-county region in the northwest Lower Peninsula, specifically Antrim, Charlevoix, Cheboygan and Emmet counties. As a result, the NLEA utilizes resources offered through MSU Extension as it provides leadership to state-wide programs sponsored by MSU Extension.
