Michigan is hosting a virtual career fair Wednesday.

The MiVirtualCareerFair runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

"Michigan businesses are growing and they're looking for top talent," said Amy Cell, Senior Vice President for Talent Enhancement at the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC). "MiVirtualCareerFair allows individuals from anywhere in the country to connect with Michigan employers, and provides busy business professionals an easy, cost-effective way to meet dozens of talented job seekers without ever leaving the office."
Within MiVirtualCareerFair, employers host exhibitor booths that include links to job postings, company profiles, employee benefits, and employer contact information, and allow job seekers to communicate one-on-one with company representatives. Post-event, employers receive in-depth analytics including candidate resumes, applications, chat transcripts, and booth visit data. All job openings posted during the fair will be accessible to participants for 30 days after the live event.
