Looking for a job? Congressman Dan Lipinski wants to help you find one.

Congressman Dan Lipinski (D-IL) will host a Job Fair this Friday, Oct. 7 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Bridgeview Community Center, 7900 S. Oketo Avenue, in Bridgeview.

The fair will provide job seekers an opportunity to meet with a wide range of area businesses that are currently hiring. Attendees should be sure to bring multiple copies of their resume.

Hey Dan, What if we can't make it on that day? Are you hosting it at another time? Thanks.

Great idea; why aren't these jobs posted on indeed.com or careerbuilder?

Some of these probably are posted, but speaking from HR point of view, you can get hundreds of resumes for a job post. Lipinski's job fair provided the opportunity for an employer to meet viable candidates face to face, instead of trying to make decisions based on a piece of paper. Thanks, Rep. Lipinski, for taking action to help link job seekers to job offerings!

Most of these job fairs are photo opportunities for politicians to pacify their constituents in the current economic crisis. If you do the stats, you'd realize most jobs are not obtained through events like these.
