I was so happy to help organize a job fair in Round Lake recently. Round Lake continues to see high unemployment. If you're searching for work or know somebody who is, I encourage you to reach out to the Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES). Here are some numbers from our July 21 hiring event at Magee Middle School:

Number of resumes accepted: 241

Number of interviews conducted: 34

Number of Provisional or conditional job offers extended: 27

Number of firm job offers extended: 8

Estimated of hires from this fair within the next year: 99

Do you think an IDES job fair event would help people near you? Contact my office.
