Where To Work In Michigan
Now, we all know the pandemic has really affected employment all over the United States and here in the Mitten.
However, data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shows Michigan's employment rate has been steadily rising back up since a sharp decline since March of 2020 and the unemployment rate has been steadily declining.
As of April 2021, Michigan's unemployment rate was about 4.9% as compared to 23.6% in April of 2020.
With that being said, there are a lot of great opportunities and companies to work for here in Michigan and "Career Expert" website, Zippia, did look into "The 100 Largest Companies in Michigan for 2021."
