  • Validation: All employers must create an account to use the system and must be validated by agency staff before they can post jobs or search for candidates.  Information provided during account creation will be used in the validation process.  Note that a Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) is required.

You may not resell job seeker account information found on this site, whether in whole or in part. Account information is the property of the job seeker and such resale or reposting may violate their privacy rights. Individuals have been asked to report any violations of this policy.

If we cannot verify the FEIN through the Michigan Department of Treasury or documents you provide, you cannot use the job portal. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) assigns the FEIN to your business. According to the IRS, all businesses employing one or more employees must have a nine-digit FEIN (IRS Information about Employer ID Numbers and FEINs)
