unemployment numbers in Illinois hovering just over 9.2 percent, and Lake
County unemployment close to 9 percent, for those who are unemployed, the need
for job hunting skills is just as real as the need for jobs. By providing relevant employment services,
resources and support, CRC helps more than 1,000 job seekers from Lake and Cook
counties each year to gain that competitive edge.
Career Resource Center offers
seminars and mentoring to help job seekers better understand and articulate
their specialized skills, strengths and talents, allowing them to more
successfully market themselves. Over the
course of its 23 year history, CRC has assisted more than 11,500 individuals in
their job searches. Candidate success rates average 80 percent.
“We are thrilled by our success rate and are delighted to be able to provide these services to our surrounding communities,” said CRC executive director Jan Leahy. “This event should be a lot of fun and will help us continue to provide top quality, relevant services.”
Food for this event is being provided by Sunset Foods. For additional information click on http://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/event?oeidk=a07e7z3zu9g368a57ff&llr=a8fmxhdab or call 847-295-5626 or email info@CareerResourceCenter.org.
