Ann Arbor SPARK Job Portal Provides Targeted Talent Attraction Resources

Ann Arbor SPARK job portal 2018 statistics.

As part of its core mission to advance the Ann Arbor region as a destination for talented people to live and work, Ann Arbor SPARK is reaching job seekers through its online job portal. It’s an ideal resource for companies headquartered in Washtenaw and Livingston counties that want to attract qualified candidates.

What makes our job portal so effective is its focus on the region’s driving industries, such as mobility, information technology, and healthcare.

Powered by Ann Arbor-based startup TrueJob, the job portal is designed to connect high-value, knowledge-based talent with the companies in the region. Ann Arbor SPARK promotes the job portal through its talent newsletters and social media posts, as well as develops custom portals during talent-attraction events such as Tech Homecoming and A2 Tech Trek.

Getting Started

If you think your job posting would fit this criteria, we encourage you to set up your job manager credentials. Click POST A JOB and follow the instructions from there. Please be sure to watch your email (check those junk folders!) for a verification email to confirm your account. Once your account is active, you’ll be able to submit jobs for approval. While our goal is to review posts within one business day, we often have your position reviewed and posted within an hour. While each position remains on the site for 30 days, your credentials will allow you to manage the post by either changing the status if it is filled before it closes, or you can request to extend the post for another 30 days.

If you’re unsure your industry or job position is a good fit for our job portal, we recommend exploring current postings. It will give you a great sense of our audience, demographics, and geographic support area.

For those companies that don’t meet the Ann Arbor SPARK job portal criteria, TrueJob remains an option to reach a nationwide audience of job seekers. Additionally, as with any job posting, amplifying its visibility on social media sites like LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook.
