The City of Galesburg and the Workforce Investment Board of Western Illinois (WIB) are co-hosting a Regional Job Fair on Friday November 9, 2012 at Carl Sandburg College. The event will bring prospective employers and employees together to connect, exchange information, take applications and in some cases interview. 
The Job fair, is scheduled for Friday November 9th from 10:30 AM to 1:30 PM, and will be divided into two sections. The General Session open to the general public from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM, and a special Veterans Only "Sneak Preview" from 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM. Additionally Veterans will have the opportunity to seek resume writing help in sessions to be scheduled during the days before the event (to be announced), and workshops the morning of the Job Fair on topics ranging from Veteran Programs, job search and interview skills. 
Galesburg Mayor Sal Garza states, "The Job fair is an important event for any career seeker, and can make the job search much easier. But this year, we wanted to pay particular attention to our region's Veterans, and make sure they are getting all the assistance we can give them in their job search. I encourage all employers with positions to fill to participate. The Spring Job Fair was a success and we anticipate even better results for the fall."
Blanche Shoup, Director, of the Workforce Investment Board of Western Illinois commented, "We are inviting businesses from within a 50 mile radius of Galesburg to participate. The labor shed in our region includes some very talented people, and connecting with them at the Job Fair could be very effective way to find a quality employee. Shoup added, "We've already had several employers commit to participating and space is limited. We are encouraging them to call and reserve space immediately."
Employers who would like to participate should contact Mike at 343-9843 or lwa14@grics.netfor information and to register. The fair is free for participating employers. Space is limited, so call now.
