Workers who lost their jobs due to Borders' liquidation can get job-hunting advice, attend resume workshops and network with recruiters at a job transition event Wednesday and Thursday.

The events are open to employees who were working at the bookstore chain's corporate headquarters in Ann Arbor or retail stores in southeast Michigan and northern Ohio at any point since 2009. That includes the 400 corporate workers who lost their jobs when Borders announced its liquidation in July.
"This is about helping an accomplished group of dynamic people figure out what will be their next chapter," said Pepper Consulting Group's Cynthia Pepper, who is chairing the committee, in a statement. "We want to give Borders employees access to as many resources and as much advice as possible so that they can make successful transitions into new careers."
