During the Coronavirus epidemic:

We hope this finds you safe and healthy as the Coronavirus pandemic seems to be tapering off in Michigan. At this time our staff is working both in the office and remotely. When in the office, we are taking all the necessary precautions to be certain that our staff and any visitors are comfortable in a safe and clean environment. Please do not visit our office at this time without an appointment.

Several of our clients are still interviewing virtually at this time (via Skype, Zoom, Facetime, etc.). We encourage you to send your resume now if you have not done so yet so that we can be in touch if we have an employer who may be interested in meeting with you in person or remotely. If we do not have an appropriate opportunity available presently, we will keep your information on file for future reference. We have already received several new opportunities to fill and we anticipate many more, exciting openings as we’ve heard that many employers are ready to make changes and upgrades.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
