COLLABORATIVE PROMOTERS

This year, seven regions around the state are once again hosting Back To Michigan, which will include a series of virtual and in-person networking events where people interested in relocating to Michigan, and current residents who are unemployed, will be able to speak directly with hiring employers. The virtual events will take place between October 7 - November 23, 2022. In-person Thanksgiving Eve events will return on November 23, 2022 in select regions. Many of these events have become Thanksgiving traditions in communities throughout Michigan over the last 11 years, resulting in hundreds of successful hires and relocations.
