Posted on 02/12/19 by Careena Eggleston



Experience for Hire Matches Older Workers with Job Openings in Grand Rapids

Are you looking for part-time or full-time work? Join AARP Michigan and West Michigan Works for a  free hiring event in Grand Rapids on Wednesday, March 27, 2019.

Meet with managers looking for your skills and qualifications, and put your experience to work!


How does this hiring event differ from a job fair?

All applicants who register for the Experience for Hire hiring event will submit a résumé. Positions submitted by employers will be reviewed for the qualifications and skills required. We will match you with these employers in advance of the event.

The Experience for Hire program, spearheaded by AARP Michigan, is a collaborative project intended to rethink hiring in Michigan by connecting employers with experienced, qualified job seekers age 50 and over, who are seeking full or part-time opportunities to put their valuable skills to work.


Click here to register for the Experience for Hire event on Wednesday, March 27, 2019 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
