A big job fair will soon take place in Grand Rapids. “The Rapid” will host the “The Roll With Us” fair on the Central Station platform

The Rapid will host a job fair on Wednesday, October 5TH from 4 to 8 p.m. It will take place on the Central Station platform.

A news release says, “Roll With Us” will help job seekers explore working for The Rapid and job opportunities at partner locations along bus routes. The fair will include West Michigan’s two largest employers, Spectrum Health and Meijer, as well as opportunities with Mary Free Bed, Kellogg’s, Gerald R. Ford Job Corps, and Hope Network.

Micalah Webster, the talent selection manager with Spectrum Health, says quote, “We are so excited to partner for this job fair. It’s a great opportunity to connect with the community, share information with job seekers, and highlight many of the positions we have available, from patient-facing roles delivering care to roles behind the scenes that help keep our business running. Many of the positions we are hiring for are in locations served by The Rapid.” End quote.

It's noted that having the fair at the Rapid Central Station makes it easier and accessible to those without personal vehicles.

The Rapid is offering on site interviews and will be making offers for bus operators and vehicle technicians.

Although The Rapid has hosted job fairs in the past, this is its first venture inviting partners to participate.
