Grand Circus Community

At Grand Circus, we believe in having an open door to the community. That’s why we love hosting events and seminars for community members to meet other amazing people and learn from each other.


Tuesday, April 21, 5:30 - 7pm

Grand Circus wants to make sure that women are ready for new jobs and new careers. On Tuesday April 21st, Grand Circus will dedicate a whole night to interview readiness. We’ll cover everything - from what to wear, to how to best answer frequent interview questions, to how to give a solid handshake, to whether or not you should actually send that handwritten thank you note. Participants in this free event will get the best tips for successful interviews and then will get to apply those tips in mock interviews with women in hiring positions around Detroit.

Women's Resume Reboot

Wednesday, May 6, 12-1:30pm

Writing and revising a resume can oftentimes feel like going to the dentist - it’s a necessary task that should be done every 6 months or so, but between life and work, it’s often put off until absolutely inescapable. After a successful event in March, Grand Circus is organizing an encore networking and resume workshop event for those who couldn’t attend. This resume and networking event, specifically for women! With the guidance and expertise of women professionals across a multitude of sectors, we’ll spend the our lunch hour revising each others resumes, reviewing LinkedIn profiles and discussing how to use social media professionally.
