Career Life Expo

More Than Just a Job Fair

Tuesday, February 20, 2018
1:00 PM to 4:00 PM


More than 80 area employers will be at the Career Life Expo to conduct interviews for hundreds of job openings. As jobseekers enter the building, they’ll be greeted by representatives from several area service agencies to help them with everything from building their resumes to finding affordable child care.

The first hour of the Expo will be a VIP session for anyone who has served in the armed forces and for anyone with a disability. All jobseekers will be welcomed starting at 1 p.m.

Sponsors of the Career Life Expo include United Way, Michigan Works! Southwest, Wings Event Center, AmeriFirst Home Mortgage, and Midwest Communications.

Free transportation is available from Michigan Works! service centers in Kalamazoo (1601 S. Burdick St., pickup 12:30 p.m., drop-off 3:15 p.m.) and Battle Creek (200 W. Van Buren St., pickup 11:30 a.m., drop-off 4:15 p.m.).
