CHICAGO – On Thursday, May 31 at 10:30 a.m., state Rep. Fran Hurley, D-Chicago, will be hosting her monthly Job Club meeting in the Beverly Branch of the Chicago Public Library located at 1962 95th St., Chicago.
“When I go door to door in our communities, jobs and economic development is one of the major issues that people are concerned about,” Hurley said. “This is one of the ways to help with this issue, by connecting constituents with jobs tips that may provide new opportunities and a decent salary.”
Hurley’s Job Club helps job seekers market their skills to potential employers. Jeffrey Routier will be a guest speaker to discuss state programs and services that provide vital links to employment. Routier is a Chicago Regional Employment Service Program Manager with the IDES. Attendees should arrive with a resume as resume tips will also be provided. This series is held toward the end of each month with new topic and guest speakers.
“In today’s competitive job market, it is now more important than ever to know how to best showcase skills and to take advantage of programs offered by IDES.” Hurley said. “Since I started hosting these events in February, we have been providing residents with helpful information on how to improve their professional skills. These are great events for anyone seeking employment or looking to start new career.”
Residents are also advised to RSVP, but it is not required. To RSVP for this free event, or for more information, residents should contact Rep. Hurley’s constituent service office at 773-445-8128 or RepFranHurley@gmail.com.
