Next weekly job fair to be March 23 at Workforce Center

JOLIET – Area job seekers are invited to attend a weekly job fair hosted by the Workforce Services Division of Will County and the Illinois Department of Employment Security from 9 to 11 a.m. Thursday, March 23, at the Workforce Center of Will County.

Among the positions employers will be looking to fill are certified medical assistants, forklift operators, general laborers, installation technician trainees, light assemblers, machine operators, maintenance technicians, medical receptionist, production line workers, production material handlers, retail merchandiser, school bus drivers, security officers, warehouse associates and warehouse material handler.  

WSD Administrative Manager Susan Flessner said the events allow job seekers to meet with several employers at once.

     “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.

The weekly events are held at the Workforce Center of Will County, 2400 Glenwood Ave., Suite 100. The day and times vary.  

Will County Executive Larry Walsh, whose office oversees WSD, encourages job seekers to be prepared to take advantage of the weekly events.
