WILL COUNTY – The July schedule for the Mobile Workforce Center of Will County adds a stop in Monee on Tuesdays, further expanding services in the eastern part of the county.
The unit will be at the Monee Park District, 5218 W. Court St., Monee, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., following the morning stop at University Park Village Hall, 698 Burnham Drive, in University Park, from 9:30 a.m. to noon.
Will County Executive Larry Walsh said he is pleased that the service is adding a Monee stop. “Susan Flessner and her staff work hard to get services throughout the county.
“A job fair held in Monee drew a lot of job seekers so the staff at Workforce Services decided it would be a good place to offer their services on a regular basis,” said Walsh. “So if you’re in the Monee area and need a job – or want to look for a new one – look for the bright orange Mobile Workforce Center on Tuesday afternoons. They will be happy to help.”
The mobile unit travels throughout Will County to help residents with resume development, cover letters and job applications. The workforce center contains 11 computer stations, internet access, and offers keyboarding lessons, as well as resume and job search assistance using online listings including jobs4people.org and Illinois workNet.
