On November 27, The Right Place in Newaygo County will partner with Hello West Michigan and regional event sponsors to attract talent back to Newaygo County through the hosting of the county’s second ReThink event. The event is part of ReThink West Michigan’s 8th annual evening of casual networking to attract former West Michiganders back to the region. ReThink Newaygo County is being hosted at Lakes 23 from 5:00 to 7:00pm. Those who pre-register online at rethinkwm.com/fremont will receive one drink ticket, free appetizers, free professional headshots and a chance to win a gift basket full of Michigan-made goods.
On a day when many former Newaygo County college students and professionals are back in the area for the Thanksgiving holiday, area companies are coming together to convince them that it is time to “rethink” West Michigan. Employers who are participating in the Newaygo County event include Spectrum Health, Gerber Products, Family Healthcare, Nestle Nutrition Research & Development, Michigan Works! West Central and River Country Chamber of Commerce. While the event is aimed at visitors who are home for the holiday, anyone interested in career opportunities with participating employers are encouraged to register and attend.
Not a traditional career fair, ReThink Newaygo County provides a casual, professional environment to network and discover many of the great career possibilities available in Newaygo County. “Event attendees will be able to learn about a number of openings available to them from regional employers like Spectrum Health, as well as from growing locally-based companies like Family Healthcare and Gerber Products,” shared Julie Burrell, Business Development Coordinator for Newaygo County, who is organizing the event.
Several ReThink events are scheduled throughout West Michigan, including events in Grand Rapids, Muskegon, Hastings, Ludington, and Oceana County. For details, visit rethinkwm.com.
