Jobseekers looking for entry-level positions will have an opportunity to meet employers and staffing agencies at a free job fair scheduled at Computer Systems Institute (CSI) in Gurnee on Thursday, July 19.
The event is open to the public from 2-4 p.m. on the campus at 5330 Grand Avenue, across the street from Six Flags Great America.
Recruiters will be looking for entry-level professionals in business administration, health care and information technology -- three areas in which CSI offers eight-month career training programs -- as well as candidates for clerical, construction, manufacturing, sales/marketing, transportation and warehousing positions. More information is available by calling 847-263-4258.
The job fair is an extension of CSI fast-track career programs that help students secure jobs in high-demand fields such as administrative assisting, computer support, medical assisting and medical billing. Programs are geared toward skill acquisition as well as preparation for certifications that facilitate job placements, including CompTIA A+, Microsoft MCITP and Microsoft MCTS exams for network systems administration; National Healthcareer Association and American Medical Technologist exams for health care; and Microsoft Office Specialist and Customer Service exams for business.
