The event will be held at The J Detroit (6600 W. Maple Road, West Bloomfield Township, MI 48322) and will feature more than 15 local nonprofit agencies offering 100 + jobs, both part-time and full-time.

Registration is preferred although not required.

Gesher Human Services, one of the largest human service agencies in the metro Detroit area, will also provide onsite resume assistance and will be available to take free headshot photographs for attendees to use in their LinkedIn profiles. For more information click here.

Director of Business and Career Services at Gesher Human Services Jason Charnas said that the decision to hold the expo was made because so many nonprofits are struggling to fill positions. “It is a real challenge to get people in the door to find out what employment is available,” said Charnas.

“This expo offers job seekers the chance to see the many varied opportunities available, plus we will have career advisors on site to review and advise applicants on their resumes.” `

Job types include:

teachers, event organizers, direct care professionals, group home managers, home health aides, program coordinators, preschool positions, geriatric care supervisors and managers, audio-visual technicians, fundraising professionals, office managers, cooks, dining service positions, licensed practical nurses, religious school positions, receptionist and many more.

For more information, contact Jason Charnas, or call 248-233-4230.
