House Minority Leader Jim Durkin and Senator John Curran to Host Free Jobs Fair

Are you looking for a job or a new career?  House Republican Leader Jim Durkin (R-Western Springs) and State Senator John Curran (R-Downers Grove) invite you to participate in their FREE Jobs Fair on Thursday, April 14 in Lemont.

The Jobs Fair will be held from 9:00 a.m. until noon at CORE Fitness Center, 16050 W 127th St, Lemont. In addition to more than 100 employers, the fair will feature the following workshops:

  • 9:00: Inside Track to Interviewing with Confidence
  • 10:00: Selling Your Strengths & Enhancing Your Brand (presented by the Southwest American Job Center)
  • 11:00: Social Media that will Enhance Your Job Search (presented by Moraine Valley Community College)


“Our Jobs Fair provides an excellent opportunity for people to be paired with employers for jobs that suit their skillsets,” said Durkin. “I would encourage all people who are in search of sustainable employment to update their resumes and to come dressed to interview at this jobs fair.”

The jobs fair was put on hold in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but returns on April 14 with a record high number of employers. Admission is free.

“The employers at this event are actively recruiting new hires,” said Curran. “By bringing more than 100 employers together under one roof, those seeking jobs can maximize the efficiency of their job search.”
