Strange: last week's Pink Slipped post that touched on Detroit as a clean technologies hub gives way to this item today on how Michigan is luring film crews to the state, on projects that need the assistance of local tradesmen. But we're still bearish on the idea of giving up all your possessions in a rush to claim a Michigan-based job. A relative of ours, after being laid off for a while, moved with his family from Atlanta to the state's hinterlands after landing a position there; after less than six weeks, he was on the laid off-line again.

Here are this week's job fairs and events, with thanks to amNewYork for the details.
