Today, State Senator Napoleon Harris III (D-Harvey) hosted a Re-Employment Resource Fair at the Gloria Taylor Banquet Hall in Harvey.

The event helped residents from the community learn about job opportunities with the state and local companies. Central Management Services gave a presentation about the State’s application process and employment opportunities within the agency.

“The 15th Senate district has some of the most economically depressed communities in the state, mostly due to lack of jobs,” Sen. Harris said. “Our community needs jobs, plain and simple, and if I’m not helping find a solution then I’m part of the problem.”

At today’s event, the Illinois Department of Employment Securities provided attendees with resume help, information about the Illinois workNet program and other services to assist with improving attendee’s chances of finding employment.

“Helping people find jobs directly impacts our community’s economic sustainability,” Harris said. “It’s a proven fact that when unemployment increases, crime increases. I just want to do my part to help our neighborhoods reach their full potential.”

Several state agencies and private companies were also on hand to provide participants with information about job vacancies.
