By 3 p.m., more than 300 job seekers hotels in downtown chicago had filled the two large dining halls at Eastminster Presbyterian Church, and the job fair for the general public didn’t start until 4 p.m. By then, the crowd had tripled.
But it wasn’t just the size of the crowd that made the Eastside Neighborhood Employment Center’s June 5 Employment Fair impressive, it was the number of companies, nonprofits and agencies hotels in downtown chicago looking for workers.
Four, 50-foot rows of folding tables in one room alone allowed seating for representatives from more nearly 70 employers, ranging from small local firms like Two Men and a Truck to Fortune 500 companies like Prudential Financial and FedEx.
“The employers seemed quite happy,” he said. “BYN Mellon said they were not only impressed by the racial diversity, but also by the skill levels. They saw everything from entry-level to people with MBAs.”
Prudential Financial Services Manager Mark Rusiski, said far from looking at a narrow range of skills, the company is expanding its presence in Pittsburgh and is looking for a broad range of employees.
“I’m looking to fill 500 positions, full- and part-time, between now and Christmas,” said FedEx Clinton hotels in downtown chicago Hub Manager Larry Davis. “These are all for package handling at our warehouse out by the airport. But once you have your foot in the door, you can move to forklift operator hotels in downtown chicago or outside moving trailers around. There’s room to move up.”
“They serve a lot of districts and private schools; Pittsburgh Public Schools, Penn Hills, North Hills, Avonworth,” said Account Manager Tessa Myers. “They typically lose people over the summer, so we’re constantly hotels in downtown chicago hiring. They provide free CDL (commercial drivers license) training.”
Myers said for her client, other than crimes against children, all other issues are considered on a case-by-case basis. Rusiski said much the same, not all crimes are job-killers, though some definitely are.
Neither of those were problems for Louis Thompson of East Liberty, who said he was primarily interested in security work as he walked out of the church with a folder full of applications. He had a different problem.
