Workforce Connection hosts job fair for laid-off autoworkers

BELVIDERE, Ill (WIFR)--- With career opportunities ranging from entry level to supervising experience, the hiring event encompassed companies with multiple job openings.

Mike Dovey from Poplar Grove says he thanks Chrysler for the job and says even though he's ready for the next chapter of his life, the added perks of Chrysler will be hard to find elsewhere.

"I believe if a man wants to work, if a woman wants to work, they'll find work. It may not always be easy or the job you want at the time, but you gotta do what you gotta do to pay the bills. If I get knocked down I get back up and continue to do what I need to do," says Dovey.

Event organizers say they hope this event helped many and they are currently planning for another event in the future.
