Middle Michigan Employers: Time to Recruit Talent Home!

What is Coming Home: Middle Michigan?

It's not a job fair, but it is an event purposefully created to connect Middle Michigan Employers with career-seekers who previously lived in Middle Michigan but have moved away. During Central Michigan University's Homecoming weekend, we hope to reengage former Middle Michiganders with more than football games and alma maters through this Career Networking event. It's an event dedicated to giving attendees good reasons to "come home" to Middle Michigan, because of our high-quality careers and our high-quality of life. Past events have resulted in many hires!

In 2019, Middle Michigan Development Corporation (MMDC) hosted their first Coming Home Networking Mixer Event for Michigan “boomerangs" - young professionals who moved out of State for a time but are eager to come back and put down some roots. This year, MMDC, Greater Gratiot Development Inc., and Gladwin County Economic Development Corporation are widening their focus to engage anyone who has relocated outside of Middle Michigan, including those who are living in different areas of the State. The organizations have joined together to host a networking event to introduce these young professionals to the amazing opportunities and employers of Middle Michigan. We are excited to bring back this annual tradition as an in-person event.

Career Focus Areas

  • Engineering
  • Business & Operations (Marketing, Accounting, etc.)
  • Healthcare

Businesses interested in recruiting young professionals and senior-level college students into our focus areas are highly encouraged to register for a Networking Table. 

How do local employers get involved?

The first step is signing up to have a free Networking Table at the event. There, you can connect directly with career-seeking individuals and promote your company brand. Networking tables allow for casual interactions with the young professionals at the event, so that you can get to know one another and determine whether you're a good match for their future career.

There is no cost for employers to participate, but spots are limited.

Each Company's FREE Networking Table Includes:

  • Company Logo Listed on Registration Page
  • 1 Table Sign
  • 1 Spot for Representative at the Event
  • Access to all attendee resumes

How will the event be promoted?

Coming Home: Middle Michigan will be supported by the combined promotion efforts of all host organizations. The event will be promoted via our social channels and through college alumni offices. MMDC will be visiting college classes to share the event in person and encouraging our partners to share the event as appropriate.
