Bertino-Tarrant works to help community members find jobs

jbtjobfairJOLIET — State Senator Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant (D-Plainfield) partnered with the Illinois Department of Employment Security to hold a successful hiring fair this week.

“Job fairs are important for connecting employers with community members who are looking for work,” Bertino-Tarrant said. “I enjoyed meeting those who attended, and I look forward to having future events that will help people obtain employment.”

More than 50 people showed up to meet with representatives from participating businesses. The first hour of the hiring fair catered specifically to veterans.

“Our veterans have loyally served our nation, and I’m committed to doing what I can to make sure they’re employed,” Bertino-Tarrant said.

Details on Bertino-Tarrant’s upcoming events are on her website.
