This year’s spring job fair on Wednesday will host 16 companies.  

The job fair was created in the spring of 2016 as a way to help students.

“Many of our students want to work, but sometimes it’s hard to get that first job,” job fair host Anne Dragosh said. “There are many great employers in the community looking to hire students so this was an opportunity to make the connection.”

The job fair was intended to not only to make it easier for students to find a job but to help students gain experience.

“Students needing or wanting to work will make a connection that will allow them to earn money, build their resume, obtain valuable work experience and improve their community networking skills,” Dragosh said.

Companies will be hiring in the LRC from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Students can get a pass from their counselor or teacher to attend.

This year’s job fair is open to more people.

“While the fair has only been open to students 16 and over in the past, we have employers looking to hire students as young as 14 this year,” Dragosh said.

The 16 employers will be Pezza landscaping, D33 Breaking Free Program, Officials Finders,

Buck Services, Ironworkers Local 393, Walmart, WeGo Parks, Monarch Landing, Prairie Path Cycles, Carol Stream Public Works, Western DuPage Special Recreation Association, Hawthorne’s Backyard Barbecue, Wyndemere, Smith & Richardson Manufacturing, In The Swim, and WDSRA.

Students planning on attending should dress professionally and come prepared.

“Be prepared to fill out resumes, shake a few hands and have some conversations with your new potential boss,” Dragosh said.

Dragosh hopes to continue holding job fairs every fall and spring.
