SOUTH BARRINGTON, Ill., March 8, 2022—Willow Creek Care Center is hosting its signature job fair from 1 p.m.-4 p.m. on Tuesday, March 15 at Willow Creek South Barrington located at 67 Algonquin Rd., Entrance D in South Barrington, IL. The free event brings together employers from the finance, food service, healthcare, manufacturing, retail, and sales industries, as well as job seekers from all over the Chicagoland area. Job seekers are encouraged to “dress for success” and bring their printed resumes. Masks are optional. No registration is required and all the details can be found at wccarecenter.org/jobfair.
What sets the job fair apart from other job fairs in the area are the additional services provided before the event, such as the pop-up professional clothing boutique. “We work hard to curate our clothing boutique experience for everyone who’s attending the job fair: whether you’re working in an office or in a customer-facing setting,” said Jennifer Forshee, resale coordinator.
Parking is free and starting at 8:30 a.m. the Willow Cafe will be open for coffee, snacks, and deli sandwiches. Participants are welcome to meet and gather before or during the job fair.
Starting at 11 a.m., the following services will be available:
- Digital headshots. Take your own photo at a headshot booth with a professional background for your work or social profiles.
- Free drawing. Enter to win various prizes, including a $100 gift card.
- Resume review. Experienced employment volunteers are ready and available to review your resume and provide feedback.
- Pop-up clothing boutique. Shop gently used career clothing and accessories for ten dollars or less.
- Haircuts. Professional hair stylists will be onsite from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. providing complimentary basic haircuts to job seekers looking to freshen up their existing style before the big event.
“The Job Fair has been running and helping job seekers in our greater community for 10 years. Thousands of participants have come through and each fair sees many people secure interviews with the vendors. We’re always excited to see how God uses the fair to bring people together with employers,” said Anne Rand, event organizer and long-term employment services coordinator.
