Employer registration for the January Virtual Job Fair is closed. The next Virtual Job Fair will be on Wednesday, February 15. Employer registration opens Monday, January 30 and closes Friday, February 3.

Connect with job seekers over a 15-minute phone screening to discuss current job opportunities and learn about their skills and experience.

How it works:

  1. Register to participate using the form below. Please note: registration will be open to the first 50 employers.
  1. You’ll receive a confirmation email from West Michigan Works! (check your email’s spam or junk folder if you don’t receive your confirmation soon).
  1. You will receive an additional email with your call schedule from West Michigan Works! the day before the job fair. If the job seeker submitted a resume, we will include this for your review. PLEASE NOTE: West Michigan Works! staff has not had a chance to assist all job seekers with or review their resumes. Additionally, if a job seeker is not qualified for the position based on their resume, you will still keep the scheduled phone screening to discuss other opportunities and/or provide feedback.
  1. Please keep your phone calls to 15 minutes and call job seekers at the scheduled time to prevent getting backed up.

West Michigan Works! will handle the promotion to job seekers. If you want to promote your participation in the event and invite more job seekers to participate, you’ll find social media posts and an event flyer on the virtual hiring event promotion page.
