“As a result of this unprecedented health crisis, many Illinoisans have lost their jobs and sources of income,” said Papas. “Residents can refer to our state’s new job website to help them find work and get back on their feet.”
Pappas is promoting the state’s new website Illinois Get Hired to help residents find employment during the pandemic. Businesses looking to hire can post job openings and search resumes, and those looking for jobs can find opportunities in their area and take advantage of virtual job fairs.

“This new website provides a convenient, virtual space that can connect residents to potential employers in their local area,” Pappas said. “As we look toward getting our state back on track, I am committed to working with local businesses to expand job opportunities in our community.”
Residents can stay informed on developments with the COVID-19 pandemic by reviewing the State of Illinois website at www.coronavirus.illinois.gov. Pappas encourages residents who need help navigating services to contact her district office at 224-520-8838 or RepDPappas@gmail.com.
