Elk Grove Township Offers Free Career Seminars In 2017

Elk Grove Township Employment Support Center has resources and services for job-seeking residents that includes:  resume review, job search help, tips and unconventional ways to find jobs, resource materials, computers, printers, and free seminars.  Our staff is ready to serve those who are seeking a new opportunity!   We have multiple job listings posted on our resource board in the main hallway and dozens more that are sent out via email blast.  If you, or someone you know is looking for employment, please call us at 224-222-0935.

The next Career Seminar entitled “Showing You’re not Standing Still” will be held on Tuesday, July 25, 2017 from 10:30 a.m. to noon at Elk Grove Township.

Employers are going to want to know what you have been doing since you left your last job.  Telling them you’ve been looking for a job is not the answer they want to hear.  This presentation will give you ways to answer the question to leave a superior impression on the interviewer that you are at the top of your game.

Reservations are appreciated.  Call to reserve your seating – 224-222-0935 or JobHelp@ElkGroveTownship.Com
