The Manistee Area Chamber of Commerce is excited to present the Business & Career Expo in partnership with Launch Manistee. 

The Manistee Area Chamber of Commerce’s Business and Career Expo, held in collaboration with Launch Manistee,  offers area students the opportunity to make connections with Manistee County Businesses and learn about jobs and careers as well as the education and training required for those careers.  Members of the junior and senior classes from Manistee Area Public, Manistee Catholic Central, Onekama, Bear Lake, Brethren and CASMAN Academy schools have attended the event for the past 2 years which has been well received by students and businesses alike. This event provides an essential linkage between schools and business by giving students the opportunity to see different careers available in Manistee County and providing businesses with potential employees, both short-term and long-term.

After the student portion, the Expo is open to the general public and college students as a resource for them to search for part time, full time and volunteer opportunities with the Exhibiting Businesses. This also provides an opportunity for the public to learn the services provided by the businesses and non profit organizations in attendance.

The event will start at 9:00 am open exclusively to high school students until 11:45 am as they navigate the booths lining the Event Center to learn more about what the businesses have to offer, and how their future goals can be achieved right here in Manistee County. A break for the Exhibitor Lunch will be from 11:45 am - 1 pm, and lunch is sponsored by Baker College. The event resumes 1 pm - 3 pm open to the public and college students.

Being an Ambassador has been very fulfilling both personally and professionally.  It has allowed me to meet many people who have become friends and clients.
