Job Hunters Boot Camp at Governors State University

University Park, IL–(ENEWSPF)– Governors State University is teaming with Rep. Debbie Halvorson (IL-11) and other public and private organizations to provide resources to members of the community seeking employment and those looking to start their own business on Thursday, July 8, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., on GSU’s University Park campus.

This is the third event in a series of Job Hunter Boot Camps sponsored by Congresswomen Halvorson and the first in which GSU has been involved.

The event will offer participants a chance to better prepare themselves for the changing job market with practical advice from a number of area professionals. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in workshops on topics ranging from navigating the job market online to finance and budgeting. Participants are also encouraged to bring their resumes for review.

Veterans in particular will have an opportunity to work with the VA and Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES) to explore the programs they offer to veterans of the armed services.

In addition to job seekers, small business owners and those looking to start their own business will have an opportunity to connect with representatives from GSU’s CenterPoint Small Business Development Center and the U.S. Small Business Administration to gain insight and information on how to get a business going and growing.
