Nearly 200 Attend Aurora Job Fair
Aurora, IL – Nearly 200 job seekers had their resumes reviewed by potential employers and 10 attendees received job offers on the sport at a hiring event in Aurora on October 17, 2014. Congressman Bill Foster and the Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES) hosted the hiring event for employers and job seekers in the 11th Congressional District at the Prisco Community Center.
“Events like this are a great way for employers and job seekers to see the potential and opportunity that our community has to offer,” Foster said. “I am very pleased that over 200 people from the community were able to attend and 10 left the event with job offers. I look forward to hearing the success stories from this event in the near future.”
Over 20 employers attended the event, with 30 on-site interviews conducted. IDES estimates that the hiring fair will result in 40 new hires.
Foster and IDES hosted a job fair in Joliet in June where 166 individuals received interviews and 75 received job offers.
