BACK TO MICHIGAN 2020 HAS PASSED, BUT STAY TUNED FOR 2021 THANKSGIVING EVENTS

When you think of Thanksgiving, do you think of being "home" for the holiday? If you're a former Michigander looking to make your visit more permanent, then Back to Michigan is the career event for you!

You may be familiar with Thanksgiving weekend events that have happened around the state over the last nine years. These casual, professional networking events, usually hosted at a local bar or similar venue, have become a staple tradition in many Michigan communities.

As with many things, COVID-19 derailed the typical format of these Thanksgiving weekend events. So instead, communities around Michigan decided to come together for a collaborative, virtual career event between November 17-24, 2020 called Back to Michigan.

 

In 2020, nine regions around the state hosted Back To Michigan, a series of virtual networking events where people interested in relocating to Michigan, and current residents who are unemployed, will be able to speak directly with hiring employers.
