EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. – State Rep. LaToya Greenwood, D-East St. Louis, is announcing a state career and resource fair in partnership with the African American Employment Plan Advisory Council. The fair will be held Saturday, Nov. 3, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Gateway Conference Center-Hall B at 1 Gateway Drive, in Collinsville.
“The foundation of any healthy local economy is stable, good-paying jobs. This resource fair’s goal is to bring jobs like that to our African American community,” Greenwood said. “Too often, workers in the African American community are overlooked or undervalued when it comes to employment assistance. However, the African American Employment Plan Advisory Council is working to even the playing field and combat Black unemployment during these financially-strenuous times.”
This event is also sponsored by the St. Clair County Housing Authority, the Madison County Housing Authority and the Housing Authority of the City of East St. Louis. Those with questions can contact the Illinois Department of Central Management Services at 217-782-4655. For employment opportunities with the state of Illinois, visit work.illinois.gov.
