The Grand Rapids, MI Express Employment Professionals office was founded in 1996 by Janis Petrini as she sought to find a community that would be a haven for both her family and her business. She determined that Grand Rapids was the place to be! Janis opened Express and the driving force was to assist in the enrichment of individual lives through gainful employment opportunities. Janis sought to provide community members with a means of providing for themselves and their families through not just jobs, but careers. The Grand Rapids office has been in existence for 18-years; Janis' dream is coming true as we continue to help people during their job search and help companies with their staffing, human resource, and training challenges. We live our vision statement: To help as many people as possible find good jobs by helping as many clients as possible find good people.
