Chamber highlights local job opportunities
On the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, the Ludington & Scottville Area Chamber of Commerce hosted one of several events located throughout the state to encourage young professionals to return to their home towns.
Ludington’s ReThink West Michigan meeting was held at Ludington Bay Brewing Company in conjunction with a host of satellite events in Grand Rapids, Hastings, Muskegon County, Saugatuk and Fremont.
This is the chamber’s second year hosting partnering with other Michigan communities to make prospective employees reconsider working and living in their hometowns.
Chamber Communications and Events Coordinator Kristen Smith said the event was successful in bringing in interested prospective employees to talk to representatives from participating local businesses like Change Parts and OxyChem to talk about job opportunities in engineering, manufacturing, information technologies, finance, sales and human resources fields.
