Batinick, Welter team up to help job seekers find work through fair
Reps. Mark Batinick (R-Plainfield) and David Welter (R-Morris) will host a free jobs fair to connect job seekers with more than 90 employers with positions to fill, according to a press release.
The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on June 23 at Troy Middle School in Plainfield. In addition to allowing candidates to meet with prospective regional and local employers, the event will also feature three free workshops.
From 9:30 to 10:15 a.m., those interested in working for the state will be taught to better understand the public hiring process. From 10:30 to 11:15 a.m., attendees can learn about Illinois Job Link, a state initiative that collates job listings and information on training and education opportunities, as well as publicly available resources and programs. From 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., the fair will present a workshop on using LinkedIn to get a job.
“Our Jobs Fair matches local job seekers with area employers who are looking to hire right now,” Batinick and Welter said in the release. “We encourage everyone who’s unemployed, under-employed or simply looking to start a new career to come check out all the exciting opportunities available here in our area.”
The lawmakers urge attendees to bring updated resumes.
