Free Help: Locate Resources to:
Get A New Job

July 9 Aurora
Informative Workshop hosted by Gideon Blustein, Deputy Director from the Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES) who will give a candid talk about Illinois’ Workforce System, why it is set up the way it is and how to best navigate it toward a new job, a new career or a new business venture. Most people are confused by the alphabet soup of “the workforce system” and are not aware of all the FREE help available whether you’re making $10.00/hour or $100,000/year.
Attendees will Learn about the many Illinois resources provided at NO COST – paid for by the State of Illinois which include:
Illinois Small Business Development Center
Illinois WorkNet Center
Illinois Department of Employment Security
DCEO – Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity
Who will benefit? Everyone!!! Whether you are an entry level, mid-level or senior level professional out of work, wanting to change careers, whether you are making $10.00/hr or $100,000/year. There is a resource designed for you. If you’re not taking advantage – you’re missing an opportunity.
