The jobs fair will be held from 9:00 a.m. until noon at CORE Fitness Center, 16050 W. 127th Street, Lemont. Several free workshops include: Effective Search Strategies for State Employment (9am Pool Room), Networking and Navigating a Job Fair (10am Pool Room), Resumes and Cover Letters (11am Pool Room), Stand Out Resumes (9am Studio Room), Networking Your Way to a New Job (10am Studio Room) and Successful Interviewing (11am Studio Room).

“Providing resources and accessibility to employers at our annual jobs fair allows job seekers the opportunity to take advantage of all potential vacancies and speak to recruiters directly about their qualifications and job requirements,” Durkin said. “With over 100 employers attending, job seekers will be able to expand their network, get their resumes into the hands of employers and secure interviews or fill out paperwork to strengthen their chances of securing new employment.”

“Our Jobs Fair is an excellent opportunity for job seekers to talk with people in their desired industry, make connections and set up interviews,” Curran said. “All of the participating businesses have job openings and are eager to hire, so I encourage workers of all experience levels and skill sets to attend and bring their updated resumes.”
