This past Saturday (10/15), Cumulus Media (Grand Rapids) hosted The West Michigan Employment Expo at the city’s DeltaPlex. More than 35 local employers were on hand for the job fair.
The goal of the expo was to bring area employers to one location for a “one-stop shop” for job seekers. This was the third job expo the company has put on in the last year.
“We want to attract quality employers who are thinking long-term,” said Rich Berry, sales director, Cumulus Media Grand Rapids. “We want to also let people know that at many of these companies, there is long-term room for advancement and that’s a good thing.”
The majority of the employers are seeking entry-level positions, but many also are looking for employees who can learn more advanced skills and turn entry-level roles into long-term careers.
