Workforce Services Division of Will County has opened in a new Joliet location at 2400 Glenwood Ave., and its Clothes 4 Work program is now relocated across the street.

Area job seekers are invited to attend a weekly job fair hosted by the Workforce Services Division of Will County and the Illinois Department of Employment Security from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 1, at the Workforce Center of Will County.

Among the positions employers will be looking to fill are cargo warehouse agent, certified medical assistants, driver/service worker, drivers, forklift operators, general laborers, installation technician trainees, machine operators, medical receptionist, package handlers, ramp service agent, snow shovelers, truck driver/ramp agent and warehouse associates.

WSD Administrative Manager Susan Flessner said the events allow job seekers to meet with several employers at once.

“Additionally, job seekers only have to make one trip per week to the Workforce Center to talk with multiple businesses about multiple jobs,” Flessner said.

The weekly events are held at the Workforce Center of Will County, 2400 Glenwood Ave., Suite 100. The day and times vary.

Will County Executive Larry Walsh, whose office oversees WSD, encourages job seekers to be prepared to take advantage of the weekly events.

“Bring your resume, dress for success and be ready for an interview,” he said.
