Businesses encouraged to check Workforce Services Division’s Resume Gallery
JOLIET – Businesses looking to hire should include the Workforce Services Division’s Resume Gallery in their search.
The Gallery was designed in response to discussions with businesses and workers looking for a way to keep resumes of job seekers from becoming buried on large sites, said Scott Kettman, Business Services/Special Projects Supervisor for WSD.
“We encourage businesses to check our website often since new resumes are added to the Resume Gallery daily,” said Kettman. “Businesses must have an active job posting on our website to access the resumes of job seekers. For businesses to take advantage of our new Resume Gallery, they should visit our website at www.jobs4people.org and click on the ‘Businesses’ tab.”
Area people looking for jobs are encouraged to take advantage of the service, as well, by submitting resumes. Uploaded resumes are reviewed by WSD staff before they are posted, said Kettman. Staff members may make suggestions on improving the resume to make it more competitive before it is put on the gallery.
A resume tip sheet is also available on the WSD website at www.jobs4people.org.
WSD is led by Administrative Manager Susan Flessner and is under Will County Executive Larry Walsh’s office. For additional information about any of the Workforce Services programs, all offered at no cost to Will County residents, go to www.jobs4people.org.
