Ellis Heights job fair held on 815 Day

By  | 

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - A job fair returned for the second year to the Ellis Heights neighborhood.

Staffing agencies, RPS 205 and local banks all set up booths searching for new employees. Those in need of help could also receive it in sealing or expunging their records.

Organizers say it was so important to bring the job fair directly to the neighborhood because often times those who need to attend don't have a way to get there.

Reportedly more than 100 Ellis Heights neighbors found jobs after last year's fair.
