VILLA PARK - Walter Conrad showed up to the Odeum Expo Center on Wednesday looking for a job. By the time he left, he had three interviews lined up, including one on Thursday.
“This was helpful,” said Conrad, one of hundreds who attended the job fair sponsored by State Senator Tom Cullerton (D-Villa Park). “I met with a wide range of employers and even had an on-site interview.”
Job seekers from across the suburbs flocked to Cullerton’s annual job fair, which this year featured more than 100 businesses ranging from the DuPage County Health Department to Google Streetview’s 360 Photo Team.
“Events like this are essential to link interested businesses with qualified candidates,” Cullerton said. “Let’s put people back to work. Our economy is growing. We have Illinois businesses ready to hire.”
Cullerton encourages residents unable to attend this event to reach out to his Villa Park office at (630) 903-6662 to take advantage of a variety of resources.
