The job market in Michigan is in the toilet in general.
I'm taking my CNA class in Jackson, but live in Ann Arbor.
The instructors said that for the first time in a long time the market is flooded with CNAs, making it difficult to find work, but they were talking about the Jackson area. I'm not sure yet what it's like in SE Michigan where I live. I intend to apply at the University of Michigan Hospitals as a Patient Services Assistant, which, as far as I can tell, seems to be their version of a CNA.
Also, before I decided to go to school full time, I'd applied for an office job at St. Joseph Mercy in Ypsilanti and had a phone interview. He said that the entry-level healthcare positions such as CNAs are so competitive that the only way most people can get in is by first working an office job and then moving into the healthcare positions...which is nuts, since you would effectively be taking a paycut and moving into a much more difficult job!
Michigan is a mess. Be prepared. I think if you are aware of it before moving here, your job search
will be easier because you'll know the challenges you face and know that if you run into trouble looking it's probably not your fault.
I didn't mean for this post to be so negative!! I have no idea what the situation is like, for example, with nursing homes, assisted living or LTC.
