Job Fairs And Resume Workshops In Muskegon County

By Jane Reed

In Muskegon, MI, opportunities are about to unfold this summer. Muskegon County job-seekers will get the chance for some job fairs and resume workshops.

Recently, the employment rate in the Muskegon County showed some improvement with their April numbers this year. Previously, the unemployment rate in the area was 6.2%. Now, it's at 4.6%. Muskegon County added 1,100 jobs during April, which state analysts called "The largest monthly increase in April since 2012." Jobs are going up and most of the added jobs were in financial activities, manufacturing and mining, logging and construction sectors.

If you'd like to make sure your paperworks are in order, MLive has it that West Michigan Works! is planning to hold a resume workshop (May 31) at 9:00 AM until 11:00 AM. Head down to the Muskegon service center at 316 Morris Ave. Make sure to bring an extra resume with you and have a digital one ready in a flash drive (or save it in your email for keeps).

If you think your resume is already spruced up, then head down to the hiring event at 121 Clover St. In Holland. At 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM, the event opens up positions for customer service reps and more. Don't forget to dress appropriately - iron that suit and press that jacket.

If you're looking for a much more interactive job fair, there's a meet-and-greet event where applicants will get the chance to meet employers personally. Job-seekers are invited to meet with representatives of Tradesmen International, learn more about the company and apply for positions. Tradesmen International is currently hiring concrete workers, construction workers, carpenter's apprentices and workers in the electrical field.

It looks like Muskegon, MI is going to do well in terms of employment and job growth this year. Head down to the events centers and learn more about the job opportunities in the area.
