The Youth Job Center will host a community job fair from 1 to 4 p.m.on Thursday, Oct. 13, at the Evanston Public Library featuring over two dozen employers with job opportunities available. 

“The exciting thing about this job fair is the depth of employers and the diversity of job opportunities this presents,” says YJC’s employer outreach coordinator, Jordan Burghardt.  “We only hear about how there aren’t any jobs.  Well the job fair will feature 25 leading employers all of whom have openings and are ready to hire.”

The job fair is open to anyone 16 years or older.  Available jobs range from entry level positions perfect for a 16 year old to those that require experience and are targeted at jobseekers 18 years or older.

“We will have basically every industry sector represented,” Burghardt says.  “We have employers from transportation, security, hospitality, retail, direct care, healthcare, office/clerical, customer service and financial services.” 

The job fair will be held in the community room of the library at 1703 Orrington Ave.

The Youth Job Center is a nonprofit agency in Evanston that assist job seekers ages 14-25 in finding employment.  The YJC also works employers to help them meet their staffing needs by referring applicants who are trained in basic job skills and ready to get to work.
