UPDATE (11:09 a.m. May 11, 2020): Due to the overwhelming interest from job seekers, Express has added additional options for people to participate on Wednesday and May 18. Additional hiring event days will be added as needed to accommodate the ongoing demand from job seekers.

Wednesday, May 13, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. (hiring for all positions)
Monday, May 18, 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m. (hiring for light industrial and skilled trades)

Express Employment Professionals of Grand Rapids is hosting a virtual hiring event next week on behalf of local employers looking to fill “hundreds” of positions.

The staffing firm will host the online recruiting event from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. May 11 for employers looking to fill light industrial, skilled trades, administrative and professional positions.

Express represents over 200 employers in the greater Grand Rapids area, many of which are essential and have immediate openings. Others are “proactively recruiting” and looking to hire job seekers to start when they re-open their business.

“We continue to support West Michigan during these times by matching great people with great companies,” said Janis Petrini, owner of Express Employment Professionals. “Right now, there is more need than ever before. … For those who are unemployed, now is the time to start their job search and begin preparing to return to work. If job seekers want to start a job right away at an essential business, we can help them. Or if they just want to start the process and get a great job lined up to start once businesses reopen, we can help with that, as well.”

Those interested can register online for a phone interview time slot online and send in some basic information so they can be matched with the correct recruiting specialist.

Express will then call and conduct an initial phone interview at the scheduled time to walk candidates through the virtual hiring process.

Everyone who registers is guaranteed an initial phone interview. Time slots are limited, so those interested should register right away. Registration will close at 9 a.m. May 11.
