A local staffing firm is looking to match over 500 people with light industrial jobs via a hiring blitz this week.

Express Employment Professionals of Grand Rapids is hosting a job fair through Dec. 10 to recruit for over 500 open light industrial positions on behalf of over 100 employers in greater Grand Rapids.

The firm will conduct phone and in-person interviews all day, every day this week as part of its annual year-end job fest.

“As we move into the end of the year, companies are continuing to ramp up their hiring efforts as they look toward 2022. This year, we are seeing more hiring demand than ever before for this time of year,” said David Robb, director of operations for Express Pros Grand Rapids.

“It is a great time for someone to find a job if they are not currently working or to potentially move to a better job if they are employed. We are helping connect people to full-time permanent jobs at some of the best companies in Grand Rapids. Job seekers working with Express likely will be able to choose between dozens of different job opportunities to ensure they get the best job, pay, location and schedule for their needs.”
