The recent Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce Job Fair was attended by an estimated 500 job seekers.
The Chamber hosts the event to help businesses and job seekers connect. The fair provides companies the opportunity to screen a great number of job seekers in a short period of time.
Forty-seven employers from the central Illinois area attended the fair; many reported that they enjoyed the downtown location and were pleased with the caliber of job seekers that attended. One employer said it was the best career fair they have ever attended.
The Greater Springfield Chamber holds its job fair twice per year — once in the spring and once in the fall. The next fair will be on Aug. 30. Registration is open. For more information or to participate, contact Sarah Graham at email@example.com or 217-525-1173.
