The Chicago Urban League is hosting its 9th annual Citywide Job Fair in partnership with Jobcase, the online community for workers and third-largest online career services resource in the U.S. – with more than 130 million workers registered on their platform. This year’s job fair will include more than 50 employers from industries including manufacturing, transportation, telecommunications, healthcare, information technology, construction, customer service, and much more. Those attending must register at https://www.jobcase.com/chicagojobfair. Companies such as Bloomin’ Brands, Ferrara Candy Co., Chicago Community Trust, ComEd, and T-Mobile will be on-site for the fair.
Kidz Purpose will be available for childcare services on-site between 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. while JPMorgan Chase will have business attire available for attendees in need. These added services will aid in ensuring all job seekers in the Chicagoland area can attend and reduce barriers standing in the way of them and employment.
Another way that the Chicago Urban League and Jobcase are preparing those seeking employment for success is through the Empower to Employment workshops taking place Monday and Tuesday, June 27-28. The in-person workshops at the Chicago Urban League headquarters located at 4510 S. Michigan Ave., Chicago, IL will take place at the following times:
Monday June 27, 2022 from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Tuesday June 28, 2022 from 2:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
The workshops will include assistance with updating resumes, networking tips, tools to perfect an elevator pitch, and more. Those who attend at least one workshop will receive a “fast pass” into the job fair.
