Next week, a local Grand Rapids recruiting agency is hosting a remote job fair,  to help connect job seekers with more than 100 companies looking for qualified candidates. Remote, because it all happens by phone, so you don't even have to leave the house.

Express Employment Professionals is the recruiting agency in Grand Rapids hosting the ‘Grand Rapids Job-a-Thon’ which is happening  Tuesday, March 2nd from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm.  According to their website, they are looking to fill light industrial positions, but are looking to help 100 different West Michigan companies find the right employees for their openings.

Some of the opportunities they have available, from the Grand Rapids Job-a-Thon website include,
