Orland Township events: Walk & Talk program, and Summer Job Fair
Orland Township’s Summer Job Fair!
Orland Township hopes to promote employment opportunities to the community this Summer.
Orland Township will host its Summer Job Fair on Tuesday, June 7 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Orland Township Activity Center, 14807 S. Ravinia Avenue, Orland Park.
The fair is open to all members of the public, and attendance is highly encouraged. Nearly 30 companies will be attending, representing a variety of industries, including healthcare, financial, manufacturing, transportation, and retail. Attendees will be able to network with local companies and talk to their representatives about current job openings. There will be plenty of opportunities to learn about both long-term careers and simple summer jobs.
“I encourage everyone to stop by and take advantage of the opportunity to talk to a variety of potential employers,” said Supervisor Paul O’Grady. “Not only will this benefit those high school and college students looking for some work this Summer, but also candidates ready for a new career.”
The job fair is free, and no registration is required. Those seeking employment are asked to bring several copies of their resume to distribute to potential employers and to dress in business casual attire. Attendees will be able to utilize the Township’s computer lab, if needed, to complete online applications for the companies at the fair.
