Will County workforce center sponsors Feb. 1 job fair
County Executive Larry Walsh encourages local jobseekers to brush off their resumes and bring them to tomorrow’s 1:30-3:30 p.m. job fair at the Workforce Center of Will County, located at 2400 Glenwood Ave., Suite 100.
If residents who are currently in the market for new jobs are unable to make tomorrow’s event, the Workforce Center reminds area constituents that it frequently sponsors similar fairs. Walsh, whose office manages the center, urges anyone who is looking for work to take advantage of services offered through the facility.
For the Feb. 1 event, available positions will include cargo warehouse agent, certified medical assistants, driver/service worker, drivers, forklift operators, general laborers, installation technician trainees and machine operators, according to the Will County website.
Additionally, employers are seeking medical receptionists, package handlers, ramp service agents, snow shovelers, truck driver/ramp agents and warehouse associates.
Co-sponsored by the Workforce Services Division of Will County (WSD) and the Illinois Department of Employment Security, the occasion is planned to be user-friendly for participants: just one visit can open the door to multiple opportunities.
According to WSD Administrative Manager Susan Flessner, job hunters can meet simultaneously with more than one potential employer.
“Additionally, job seekers only have to make one trip per week to the Workforce Center to talk with multiple businesses about multiple jobs,” Flessner said on the county website.
Walsh reminds area workers that Workforce Center events occur weekly.
“Bring your resume, dress for success and be ready for an interview,” he said.
