HILLSIDE, Ill. – State Rep. Emanuel “Chris” Welch, D-Hillside, continued his efforts to help local job seekers gain employment by hosting his annual job fair last week at the Proviso Math and Science Academy in Forest Park.

“As I fight in Springfield to build a stronger Illinois that puts working families first and creates jobs in our community, it’s important to me that I continue to help job seekers locally by hosting events like my job fair,” Welch said. “We had a great turnout this year and I would like to thank all the employers and residents seeking employment who attended.”

At Welch’s fair job seekers were able to network, submit their resumes and receive resources for the unemployed and underemployed. Multiple state agencies and local companies hosted booths at the event to discuss job opportunities with prospective employees.
