The Kankakee Community College Charlton Career Center, in partnership with Kankakee Workforce Services, will host a series of industry-specific job fairs this fall.

“The Job Fairs are an ideal setting for job seekers to learn more about local employers and current opportunities,” said Kim Cross, coordinator of Career Services. “We want participants to dress professionally, bring resumes and to enjoy the experience of meeting employers from throughout the area.” 

If participants need resumes, they are encouraged to visit either KCC’s Charlton Career Center at the Riverfront Campus in Kankakee or the North Extension Center in Bradley for assistance before the event.
