Radio stations produce Employment Expo
More than 35 employers will be on hand for a job fair in town this Saturday.
The West Michigan Employment Expo, hosted by the Cumulus Media Grand Rapids’ five radio stations, will be held in Grand Rapids at The DeltaPlex, at 2500 Turner Ave. NW, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Cumulus Media Grand Rapids — which comprises WLAV FM, WBBL FM, HOT 105.3 WHTS, 94.5 NASH WTNR FM and WJRW AM — has hosted two other employment expos in the last year.
The job fair
The goal of Saturday's expo is to bring area employers to one location for a one-stop shop for job seekers.
The majority of the employers are seeking entry-level positions, but many also are looking for employees who can learn more advanced skills and turn entry-level roles into long-term careers.
“We want to attract quality employers who are thinking long-term,” said Rich Berry, sales director, Cumulus Media Grand Rapids. “We want to also let people know that at many of these companies, there is long-term room for advancement and that’s a good thing.”
About 35 to 45 employers are expected to attend the expo.
