Experience for Hire, AARP Michigan’s third hiring event, will be Wednesday, March 27, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at West Michigan Works, 215 Straight Ave. NW in Grand Rapids.
Registration for this event is now closed.
Job seekers are matched with local employers interested in hiring older workers.
Some individuals get hired on the spot after initial interviews, and many other applicants are selected for appointments for second-round interviews.
In the current environment of low unemployment rates, the event is designed to match up the increasing number of older adults who want to stay in the workplace with the growing number of employers who are having difficulty filling vacancies.
AARP Michigan is collaborating with Michigan Works!, the state workforce development system, to present the job fair.
