First Ever Traverse City JOBfest Underway at the Park Place Hotel

The first Traverse City JOBfest is underway in Traverse City and it’s already been a busy day.

Thirty employers are at the Park Place Hotel and Conference Center in Traverse City with over 100 available positions.

More than two dozen businesses are there meeting with potential new hires. 

From manufacturing in the medical industry to military, construction, and retail; there are many things to check out at this first-of-its-kind of job fair at the Park Place Hotel.

Michigan Works! is also there with computer set up to help job-seekers get right to work on the resumes.

They say this is a great place to get started, whether you’re out of work are looking to change careers.

“If they want to stop by our booth and develop a cover letter or resume to give to employers that are here. Whether they are employed or unemployed, just looking for a new change, they can stop by they can find out all information about our programs that we have,” said Marty Scarborough with Michigan Works!

So far, it’s already a busy event with 100 people coming through the doors just in the first hour.

They’ll be there until 7 p.m. at the new conference center at the Park Place Hotel.
