Hold a job fair with real employers and what do you get?
Hundreds and hundreds of job seekers.
Congressman Joe Walsh arranged for the following Illinois employers to attend:
- Northrop Grumman,
- Scot Forge,
- Takeda Pharmaceuticals,
- Bridgeview Bank Group,
- Mercy Health System,
- the Schaumburg Police Department,
- among others.
The Woodstock North High School job fair also included a seminar on how to approach job interviews.
Walsh estimated attendance at 600-700 people.
That’s more than have attended any of his Town Hall meetings.
