Naperville area residents and businesses are invited to save the date for the 2022 Community Job Fair set for Saturday, Jan. 8. Naperville Park District and KidsMatter will co-host the event.

The job fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Fort Hill Activity Center in the first-floor gym, 20 Fort Hill Drive in Naperville.

 

This free event is intended for a variety of jobseekers, from high school students (ages 15 or older) to senior adults.

"We hope that college students who are home on winter break will take advantage of this opportunity to begin seeking summer employment and internships," said Nina Menis, CEO and executive Director of KidsMatter. "We plan to offer mock interviews, resume building and other workforce preparation for both high school and college students."

The 2022 Job Fair also will include opportunities for retirees and other adults seeking part-time work. For example, park maintenance and golf course maintenance positions at the Naperville Park District can be ideal for retirees who are looking for a flexible schedule.

Additionally, positions at Fort Hill Activity Center and in recreation programs often have flexible daytime schedules.

Area businesses interested in participating may contact Sherilyn Hebel at sherilyn@kidsmatter2us.org for more information.
