There are so many open jobs out there currently that someone is bound to find something they like. But if you're still on the lookout for that perfect opportunity this week could be the week you find it.

The Grand Rapids Chamber of Commerce is hosting a 'Back to Work Job Fair' this Thursday with over 50 recruiters from different industries attending the event. Businesses around West Michigan will be there looking for their next hire(s) including:

  • AHC Hospitality
  • Cascade Engineering
  • Consumers Credit Union
  • Frederik Meijer Gardens
  • Haworth
  • Holland Home
  • Mary Free Bed
  • Metro Health
  • Versiti Blood Center of Michigan
  • Weller Truck Parts
  • YMCA of Greater Grand Rapids

These are just some of the companies that will be there meaning there will be plenty of opportunities to consider, whether you're looking to get back into a previous career or start a new one.

The job fair will take place from 8a-12p at the Hilton Garden Inn on E. Beltline. Attendees should pre-register but walk-in's will be welcome too.

I know you've probably gotten used to the sweat pant life, but you're trying to make an impression so put on your best business attire. Then, you can change right back into your comfies when you get back home. Also, don't forget your resume and to make several copies to hand out. You can arrive at any time during the job fair.

Good luck and start collecting those checks!
