A local organization is hosting a networking event this week designed to draw former residents of West Michigan back into the region’s talent pool.

Hello West Michigan, a talent recruitment organization, is inviting young professionals who are home for Thanksgiving to a casual networking night with the goal of connecting former residents with job opportunities at 49 companies and several nonprofits.

The event, ReThink West Michigan, aims to capitalize on one of the most popular bar nights of the year — Thanksgiving eve — by hosting networking gatherings with free drinks, appetizers and prizes.

Simultaneous events will be held on Nov. 27 from 5:30-8 p.m. at bars in six cities across West Michigan.

Participants are asked to register online.
