Aug 31 – Metro Detroit Job Fair at Southfield Best Western

Southfield, MI- Do you want a full-time or part-time job? This event will connect you with employers hiring experienced candidates, people with no experience, currently employed candidates, college graduates, recent college graduates, internship candidates, people with felony convictions, older senior workers, disabled candidates able to work, youth ages 17 to 24 years old, skilled trade candidates, military veterans, union workers and entry level candidates.

Michigan companies are looking to hire YOU. Several job openings in Wayne County, Ann Arbor Area, Western Wayne County, Port Huron, Livingston County, Flint Area, Lansing, Macomb County, Oakland County and Metro Detroit plan to attend this event.

Bring your resume and plan to meet several recruiters; dress for possible job interviews.


1) Prepare in advance

Before you go to the fair, have a look at the list of companies that will be attending. Have a look at the careers sections of their websites and review career opportunities they have available. The better prepared you are, the better and more specific questions you can ask, and candidates who’ve done their research always impress prospective employers. Also, review the directory and map of the career fair so you know where the employers you’re interested in talking to are located.

2) Bring many copies of your resume

You’ll need these to hand out to employers. Make sure you build a resume before the fair, and that you bring more copies of your resume than you think you need. Also make sure that they are clean and unwrinkled. If you happen to have a business card, bring a stack of those as well.

3) Follow up (and say Thank You)

You have your notes from various conversations, and you’ve handed out your resume to anyone who has accepted it — you’re on the right track! But one career fair tip that a lot of beginners forget is following up with a thank-you note or email. This tip is critical to follow if you want to get results from your efforts at a career fair. Send thank-you notes to people you spoke to and add them to LinkedIn within a couple of days after the fair. When you send your request, add a personalized note to remind them that you met at the career fair.

If you’ve discussed any specific roles with recruiters, send your resume via email with a brief cover note reminding them of the conversation and emphasizing what you can bring to their company. If there are no suitable positions available right now, you can always ask the recruiter if you can come in for an informational interview. By attending a career fair, you’ll get to meet lots of different potential employers in the same place and have a fantastic opportunity to network – a great chance to progress your job search in the right direction!
