ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) – Those looking for work were able to network and hand out resumes at a major job fair on Friday.

The Workforce Connection held a hiring event at the RMAP Regional Design Center this morning.

More than 20 employers were there including from Fed-Ex Ground, the Rockford Fire Department, and Pinnacle Logistics.
