Finding the right job just got easier


The job market is very competitive these days, but employers are still looking for talented workers to be part of their team. In Ionia, West Michigan Works! is helping connect employers with job seekers. The organization focuses on two categories. The Talent/job-seeker side, and the Business/employer side. They are your one stop shop for your career change, developing a skill, and/or filling your open positions.  The goal of West Michigan Works! is to provide hope and resources to job seekers and employers to bring the two together.
