The event at West Ridge Elementary School featured a variety of positions available with several different types of employers. Held in partnership with Alderman Debra Silverstein (Chicago-50th Ward) and the Illinois Department of Employment Security, the hiring fair drew small businesses, large corporations and municipal organizations.

"Our expectations for helping Chicagoans find opportunities for employment were exceeded today," Silverstein said. "We will be assessing our results and how we can improve as we look into future events like this."
