Job Prep Boot Camp ready to assist job seekers for Oct. 14 job fair

U.S. Rep. Robin Kelly (D-Ill.) will host the fourth annual Hiring Event for residents of the 2nd Congressional District from 9 a.m. to noon on Friday, Oct. 14, in the gymnasium of South Suburban College, 15800 State St., South Holland.

Companies and agencies participating this year include UPS, ComEd, Metra Rail, Illinois Tollway Authority, Ingalls Memorial Hospital, Whiting Corporation, Jewel-Osco, Lakeside Metals, Illinois State Police, Metropolitan Water Reclamation District, Comcast, CMS, State of Illinois and the Cook County Sheriff’s Department. 

To prepare for the Hiring Event, Rep. Kelly is hosting two Job Search Boot Camps to teach job seekers how to find a job in 30 days or less; how to win an employer over in 30 seconds; and understand why you will find your next job at a job fair.

The first Boot Camp will take place from 2 to 4 p.m. on Oct. 11 in Room A121 in the Adult Training and Outreach Center at Prairie State College, 202 S. Halsted St., Chicago Heights.

The second is from 5 to 7 p.m. on Oct. 13 in Room 3371, at South Suburban College.
