DEARBORN, Mich. – ACCESS, the nation’s largest Arab American nonprofit, held its highly anticipated Spring Job Fair at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center on Wednesday, March 16, 2016. The event was open to the public and provided over 1,000 attendees with extensive insight into local employment opportunities.
The 2016 Spring Job Fair featured more than 100 employers from the financial, health care, hospitality, government, transportation, service, and manufacturing sectors, and included a number of recognized corporate names, such as Home Depot, Lowes, and Citizens Bank. As always, the Job Fair enabled attendees to mingle directly with hiring managers, who conducted on-site interviews with job seekers.
“At ACCESS, the economic empowerment of the communities we serve is a leading priority. While the burden of both unemployment and underemployment in Southeast Michigan remains a challenge, by helping our clients better prepare themselves to enter the workforce, and by hosting events that connect job seekers and employers, we are helping communities to get back on their feet,” said Najwa Hadous, ACCESS Employment and Training Department Director.
ACCESS holds two public Job Fairs per year, and has served tens of thousands of job seekers in the past decade. The 2016 Spring Job Fair marks the third year that the event was hosted at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center. Previously, the event was held in ACCESS facilities, but several years of record breaking turnout from employers, clients, and community members forced the relocation to the much larger Ford Center.
