GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The Grand Rapids Chamber will host a job fair this Thursday, Sept. 30 to help connect local employers with quality talent.

It’ll feature more than 50 recruiters and hiring managers from Chamber members across different industries, according to a news release Tuesday.

The job fair is a tremendous opportunity for jobseekers, whether starting their career or looking for the next challenge.”

The job fair will take place from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn, located at 2321 E. Beltline Ave. SE in Grand Rapids.
