We already have 90 registered and expect at least 100 employers this year. Part-time or full-time, entry level or experienced, there is something for everyone at this job fair. We are thrilled that every year, hundreds of job seekers from throughout the district show up dressed for success, with resumes in hand, ready to meet our regional employers. It’s really a privilege to host such an important event for JJC students and the community and everyone is excited to have the fair in such a large, beautiful facility.”

Those planning to attend should dress professionally, bring several copies of their resume, and review the websites of the employers they are interested in before the fair.

Resume assistance is also available for any job seeker in need. JJC students and alumni can receive assistance from Career Services and Will County residents can receive assistance through Workforce Services of Will County’s Mobile Workforce Center and Job Search Workshops.
