Job fairs for veterans scheduled
CHICAGO - One of the largest efforts to find employment for veterans kicks off Thursday as the first statewide Veteran Job Fair of 2012 comes to communities across Illinois.

The veteran-specific effort is part of an effort to help veterans compete for newly created private-sector jobs.

Of the nine job fairs across the state, three are within easy driving distance to Lawrence County.

On Nov. 8, a job fair will be from 9 a.m. until noon at the Effingham National Guard Armory, 1206 West Temple Ave.

The next day, Nov. 9, a job fair will be from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Champaign National Guard Armory, 109 E. Park St.

The Rolland Lewis Community Building, at 800 South 27th St., in Mount Vernon, will be the site of a job fair from 9 a.m. until noon on Nov. 15.

Veteran Job Fairs were initiated in 2005 to recognize the value that veterans bring to the workforce.

Prior to the fairs, veterans and employers are urged to visit Illinoisjoblink.com, the revamped IDES help-wanted website.

This no-cost on-line career resource allows individuals to create multiple resumes that emphasize different talents and allows businesses to search for specific skills.
