CHICAGO – State Rep. Fran Hurley, D-Chicago, hosted her first Job Club meeting at her district office in Chicago on February 23. She will be holding a series of meetings to serve as an informal gathering for those seeking jobs. The intent of meetings is to provide individuals with useful tactics on how to apply for career opportunities and network.
“Job hunting can be a difficult, time-consuming process. I hope this series is helpful to area job seekers and allows them to gain necessary information to successfully find a job,” Hurley said. “I am committed to supporting efforts in Illinois to create and retain jobs, and to ensure that local job seekers have opportunities to maximize their potential and become gainfully employed.”
The Job Club meeting included discussion on resumes, professional profiles, and a wide-variety of online informational tools available to job seekers. In addition, attendees learned about utilizing IllinoisJobLink.com as a resource, as well as the Do’s and Don’ts when applying for a job.
The next Job Club meeting will be held on Friday, March 30 at the Beverly Branch of the Chicago Public Library, located at 1962 95th Street in Chicago, beginning at 10:30 a.m. The series will be held the last Friday of every month at varying locations. Guest speakers and topics will also vary monthly. If constituents are interested and seeking more information, they can call Hurley’s constituent service office at 773-445-8128 or emailRepFranHurley@gmail.com for more details and to reserve a spot.
“Every day I meet so many talented people from our community,” said Hurley. “It has been my practice to inform individuals in my district of job opportunities that are brought to my attention. My Job Club series will hopefully assist those currently in the process of seeking employment. I encourage those who are looking for work or thinking about a new career to attend.”
