ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Hundreds of unemployed Stateliners packed into the Tebala Shrine Temple today to meet with dozens of potential employers.
Rockford Register Star hosted this afternoon’s job fair. Representatives from regional companies like Avon and local city services like the Rockford Fire Department met with prospective employees. A recent graduate of Augustana College says that job fairs give him more hope while looking for work.
“It is nerve wracking to actually look for the jobs and then when you find something you want, just to get the nerve to actually apply when you know there’s so many other people that are just as qualified as yourself, but it’s all about having a positive attitude.
Another job fair will be held at Tebala this spring.
