PSC Job Fair Scheduled for Oct. 16 [10/3/13]

Representatives from companies and institutions from across the metropolitan Chicago area will be recruiting for full- and part-time positions ranging from entry level to professional and managerial levels at the Prairie State College (PSC) annual fall job fair. This year’s job fair is being held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 16, at the PSC Conference Center, located at 202 S. Halsted St., Chicago Heights.

By attending the PSC job fair, attendees can identify potential jobs, expand networking opportunities, hone interviewing skills, gather information about companies, and more. Attendees also are encouraged to dress in business attire and bring résumés to present to recruiters for open positions.

“Job fairs are one of the most effective ways to land jobs because employers at job fairs are actively hiring,” said Tanya Norfleet, coordinator of career development services at PSC. “Attendees should take the time to show employers they are serious, and should treat their time with employers like job interviews.”

The job fair is co-sponsored by UPS, the Chicagoland Regional College Program (CRCP), and the Illinois workNet Center.

The fair is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is encouraged, and is available on the job fair website at prairiestate.edu/jobfair.
