Experience for Hire

Experience for Hire is a collaborative project intended to rethink hiring in Michigan by connecting employers with experienced, qualified job seekers age 50 and over who are seeking full or part-time opportunities to put their valuable skills to work. This project is in a pilot phase and currently includes Ingham, Jackson, Macomb, and Wayne counties.
