Ahead of Michigan’s construction season, a series of regional hiring events will be taking place across Michigan in March and early April for the first time.
Infrastructure and heavy highway construction employers from across the industry will be hiring employees for construction projects involving roads, bridges, underground, maintenance, engineering, inspection and testing, mining, traffic control, material supply, service providers, and more.
The Michigan Infrastructure & Transportation Association (MITA) and Michigan Construction are working with industry partners to host the career fairs. Michigan construction workers and skilled trades laborers are encouraged to attend a local hiring fair near them.
“Construction industry career fairs serve two incredibly important functions: supporting Michigan’s workforce, and ensuring our construction projects stay on track,” said Mike Nystrom, executive vice president of MITA. “As an association, we’re constantly advocating for the necessary resources to support our infrastructure needs. One of those most essential resources for infrastructure improvements is a skilled and employed workforce.”
