‘ReThink’ event aimed at drawing workers back to Oceana.

ROTHBURY – The Oceana County Economic Alliance will partner with Hello West Michigan and regional event sponsors to attract talent back to Oceana County through the hosting of the county’s first ReThink event Wednesday, Nov. 27.

The event is part of ReThink West Michigan’s eighth annual evening of casual networking to attract former West Michiganders back to the region. ReThink Oceana County is hosted by the Double JJ Resort from 5:30-8 p.m.

Those who pre-register online at rethinkwm.com/oceana will receive two drink tickets, free appetizers, and a chance to win a Double JJ prize package.

On a day when many former Oceana County students and professionals are back in the area for the Thanksgiving holiday, area companies are coming together to convince them that it is time to “rethink” West Michigan. Participating employers include Double JJ Resort, Gray and Co., Peterson Farms, Oceana Foods, and Spectrum Health. Michigan Works West Central and Westshore ESD will also be on hand with community resources. While the event is aimed at visitors who are home for the holiday, anyone interested in career opportunities with participating employers is encouraged to register and attend.

Not a traditional career fair, ReThink Oceana County provides a casual, professional environment to network and discover many of the great career possibilities available here and now in Oceana County.

“Event attendees will be able to learn about a number of openings available to them from regional employers like Spectrum Health, as well as from growing locally-based companies like Peterson Farms, all while enjoying the fun atmosphere of Double JJ Resort,” said Jodi Nichols, Business Development Coordinator for the Oceana County Economic Alliance, who is organizing the event. “The Economic Alliance is happy to be able to bring this unique hiring opportunity to our area employers who are building their workforce to support continued growth in Oceana County.”

Attendees should use the entrance at the hotel/waterpark registration area.

​​​​​​​Besides the ReThink Oceana County event happening at the Double JJ Resort, several other ReThink events are scheduled throughout West Michigan, including events in Grand Rapids, Hastings, Fremont, Ludington and Muskegon. For details, visit rethinkwm.com.
