The Oakland University Alumni Association is partnering with a number of economic development teams and educational institutions in the Metro Detroit area to bring you an exciting career fair opportunity. The fair will be held in the Oakland Center on the campus of Oakland University on Thursday, February 24, 2011.
The goal of the Oakland-Macomb Job Hub is to connect Southeast Michigan job seekers with businesses from throughout the area that have immediate job openings in professional and/or high tech industries. Dan Casey, former director of Economic Development for Rochester Hills, brought the idea to his colleagues in neighboring cities after hearing more and more employers mention they had immediate job openings to fill.
“After a two year job drought in the region, there is a definite need by local employers to reinvigorate their employee ranks with skilled, dedicated workers,” explains Casey. “The Oakland Macomb Job Hub 2011 is organized to match area businesses that have immediate job openings with candidates interested in long-term employment.”
In addition to Rochester Hills, participating communities include Auburn Hills, Madison Heights, Southfield, Sterling Heights and Troy, as well as Michigan Works!, Expetec Technology Services, the Rochester Downtown Development Authority, Young Professionals of Rochester, Macomb Community College, Oakland Community College and host sponsor, Oakland University. Oakland Macomb Job Hub 2011 employer participants do not need to be based in these cities; nor do career fair participants.
