Michigan companies need to fill thousands of critical, immediate vacancies to support work during the COVID-19 pandemic, including those in logistics, healthcare, manufacturing and agribusiness industries. The State’s employment search engine - Pure Michigan Talent Connect - provides job seekers and employers with an online portal at MiTalent.org to post, search and connect to these job openings.

Thousands of new jobs are being posted to MiTalent.org each day. Employers looking to hire during the COVID-19 pandemic should use the COVID-19 On-Demand Hiring Intake Form to ensure their postings appear in the search results.

“Michiganders are tough and hardworking, especially in times of crisis,” Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said. “Tens of thousands of open jobs are available right now with more than 2,000 Michigan companies and organizations hiring to continue providing critical services.”

The Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity (LEO) is encouraging jobseekers to visit MiTalent.org where enhanced search functionality has been added to the homepage to better connect job seekers with these critical opportunities. Please note, several job postings feature multiple positions available.

“While many Michiganders are being displaced from work, thousands of employers have immediate job openings,” said LEO Director Jeff Donofrio. “We encourage those who are currently unemployed to search available jobs at MiTalent.org.”

Pure Michigan Talent Connect is a launch pad to new jobs, careers and talents. It’s a tool for connecting Michigan’s job seekers and employers and serves as a central hub linking all public and private stakeholders who support the state’s workforce.

Job seekers visiting Pure Michigan Talent Connect who create free profile will be able to upload or create a resume, as well as customize their job preferences so they are seen by employers that are searching for talent. They will have access to store employment-related documents, manage their job searches, and sign up for job notifications from their customized dashboard. A profile is not required to search for jobs.  

Information around this outbreak is changing rapidly.
