Illinois Hosts Job Fair in Geneseo

The state of Illinois wants to help you find a job. Tuesday, the Geneseo Public Library will host a job fair in partnership with the Illinois Department of Employment Security.

Over 200 jobs are available with companies like Mediacom, Farm and Fleet in Geneseo, Tyson Foods, and others. Tory Davis is the Business Services Manager for IDES. He says more than ten companies have registered for the event, hoping to fill hundreds of positions. 

Davis says beginning next week, people who apply for unemployment will be required to upload their resumes to www.IllinoisJobLink.com. The new process will help IDES connect workers more quickly to companies with job openings.
