CHICAGO, Ill. – In honor of Latino Heritage Month, state Rep. Delia Ramirez, D-Chicago, is partnering with state and city agencies, local businesses and community organizations—along with legislative colleagues including state Sens. Omar Aquino and Cristina H. Pacione-Zayas, state Rep. Will Guzzardi and Alderpersons Carlos Ramirez-Rosa and Rossana Rodriguez-Sanchez—to hold a Job Fair Saturday, October 15 from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Northeastern Illinois University, El Centro, at 3390 N. Avondale Ave, in Chicago.
“Supporting those who are looking for jobs, or looking to trade up to better situations, is a critical part of promoting economic equality and opportunity, as well as upward mobility,” Ramirez said. “That’s why I’m partnering with the city, the state and others to connect workers and employers at this event.”
The organizers say they are especially interested in promoting increased representation of the Latino community in state and local government, and multiple state and local government employers will be on hand. Free on-site parking will be available and participants are encouraged to bring multiple copies of their resume. All are welcome to attend.
“The people and families of our community work hard every day and have a wealth of passions and talents they bring to the table,” Ramirez said. “Helping connect them with a network of resources and potential employers is a valuable investment in the area’s economy and neighborhoods.”
