OGLESBY — State Rep. Lance Yednock, D-Ottawa, is helping local job seekers partner with local employers by working with the Illinois Valley Community College to host a job fair on Tuesday, Oct. 15, from 2 to 6 p.m. at the IVCC campus in Oglesby. Local employers will be invited to participate to fill any openings.
“I want Illinois’ middle class to be stronger than it is, and that means helping people find jobs,” Yednock said. “It is tough to make ends meet, and with the sudden closure of the Del Monte Foods in Mendota and the Hennepin Power Plant in our area, employers and employees need to work together to keep our economies going and ensure people know about what opportunities are available here.”
Yednock and IVCC will be hosting the joint job fair to help local businesses offer open employment opportunities. Because of limited space at the college, interested business owners must RSVP for this event in order to participate.
To do so, call at 815-324-5055 or email StateRepYednock@gmail.com. After receipt of an RSVP, additional information about setup, tables and chairs will be provided.
“I strongly encourage both employers and employees to participate in this event, as their joints efforts will create a better Illinois and middle class in short and long term,” Yednock said. “I look forward to working with IVCC and local employers to help people find work that is best for them and their families.”
IVCC is located at 815 N. Orlando Smith Road in Oglesby. The job fair will be held in the Peter Miller Community Technology Center in Room 124.
