Jobs fair brings 70 employers to Barrington
State Sen. Dan Duffy (R-Lake Barrington) and state Reps. David McSweeney (R-Barrington) and Ed Sullivan (R-Barrington) teamed up to to bring a jobs fair to Barrington on Friday.
“While we continue to fight for legislative solutions to improve Illinois’ jobs climate, we also support local events like this one that help match qualified candidates with dozens of employers,” Sullivan said. “The goal of this event is to provide businesses and potential employees with accessible and ample resources to assist in the job search process.”
The Barrington jobs fair featured approximately 70 employers and offered several services for those seeking jobs.
“The rate of unemployment in Illinois is unacceptable, and we need to pair people who want to work with jobs that suit their skill-sets," McSweeney said.
Free workshops at the jobs fair were designed to help potential employees find out more about their skills and suitable jobs.
"As Illinois continues to lag behind other states with regard to unemployment, we are doing everything we can to help put Illinoisans back to work," Duffy said. "This jobs fair puts nearly 70 employers in one room so that those seeking good jobs can maximize the efficiency of their job search."
