In Renewed Job Market, Recruiters Struggle To Hire Job Seekers At Michigan Job Fair

In what was once a lukewarm jobs market; is now a growing jobs market plentiful with hundreds of local job opportunities as fifty recruiters struggle to fill over five-hundred immediate job opportunities at Michigan Career Fair sponsored by on August 29.  

With the current unemployment rate, dropping recruiters tussle to find candidates for full and part-time positions in Metro Detroit. When many job seekers are protesting, “no one is hiring” employers are now offering hiring incentives and great salaries to lure new hires. At the widely advertised job fair on Thursday local recruiters eager to interview potential candidates were lightly disappointed when only a few hundred job seekers showed up at the preholiday career fair. A recruiter with Art Van Furniture Stores was surprisingly shock at the turnout after participating at lasts month event on July 31 were attendance had reached over 2,500 job seekers. Many recruiters with only a few positions available were grateful to interview and hire several candidates onsite at yesterday’s career fair, while companies such as Quicken Loans with major hiring needs struggled. 

According to a recent survey by, the average company is now paying entry-level candidates $ 8.00 to $ 11.00 hourly and experienced candidates $ 14.00 to $ 25.00 hourly with benefits and vacation pay. Nearly 93% of participating companies at events are based in Oakland, Macomb and Wayne County; engineering, manufacturing, technology, healthcare, sales, management, restaurant, banking and mortgage continue to be the most promising career fields.

As the manufacturing industry rebuilds in Michigan, many of the supplier companies spearheading production and administrative hiring are responsible for reviving the job market in the metro area. Our monthly job fairs are the connector source uniting suppliers with job seekers; the position opportunities are enormous for candidates. 

The need for consumer and business product/services has increased in the last two years creating a demand for sales professionals bringing hundreds of jobs to the communities where companies set up shop. For instance, companies like First Financial Insurance Group headquartered in Carleton, Michigan are training entry-level insurance agents with a base salary of $35-50k plus commission. Many employers in need of sales representatives have abandoned their former commission only pay structure to generate candidate interest by offering salary pay. 

The booming growth of the Michigan economy can be reflected in current employment trends on job site  A large number of job fair recruiters are currently listing opening on, due to a pent-up demand and lack of candidates at Michigan Job Fair. Over 500 openings are available, primarily concentrated in blue-collar work, engineering, manufacturing, tooling, healthcare, sales, management, restaurant, banking, mortgage and IT.

In an effort to fill hundreds of positions, recruiters will be ready to interview candidates at the Hired In Detroit Saturday Career Expo held on September 14th at the Westin Hotel in Southfield, Michigan. Candidates can pre-registered and see who is hiring at is the largest job fair sponsor and job search site based in Michigan. It is a part of the and hiring brand.
